Can I walk you through it instead of just doing it for you?
sure, grateful for any help! did i get the method correct?
To be honest, I don't know the names of stuff, but you're correct that you have to somehow separate out the T. If you look at the equation you're given, you see that there are two terms that have T in them, right?
yes i thought maybe i could do a double integral of (d^2/dx^2)*T=sin(pi*x) and do an analogous equation for the y and then add the two answers
oh wait, is dx a single variable?
I thought this was just algebra.
i mean it as second derivative of T when I write (d^2/dx^2)*T
oh, okay. I get it now. I just didn't understand the notation written out like that I guess. So yes, double integral is the way to go.
and then just add the two solutions? sorry - dont have a math textbook with me. i think i need a quick refresher.
but remember that when you write the double integral, you have to make sure to include everything on one side, not just the parts you want.
i see. so on the right hand side, i keep the same but then take the double integral with respect to x, and then respect to y?
hold on, this is more complicated than I originally thought, so I'm doing it out on paper first to see how it works.
so I'm not sure exactly how to do this, but I think I can tell you if you're wrong/why something wouldn't work.
ok. so this is what i did before i get stuck: 1. the solution is some generalized u=X(x)Y(y) 2. plug this general solution into the original equation 3. i get: y((d^2/dx^2)*x)+((d^2/dx^2)y)*x = -2*(pi^2)*sin(pi*x)*sin(pi*y) 4. stuck! :)
it's ok i think i'll just move on to something else thanks for your time and effort! i appreciate it. :)
yeah, sorry about that.
