Solve the differential equation dy
dt = e−3y by separation of variables. You should obtain
an explicit formula for y as a function of t, containing a constant c (“general solution”).
For what values of t is your formula valid?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[ dy/dt= e^{3y}\] \[dy/e^{3y}=dt\] \[e^{3y}dy=dt\] integrate both sides \[e^{3y}/3=t+c\] \[e^{3y}=3t+c1\] take log bot sides \[3y=log(3t+c1)\] \[y=(1/3)log (3t+c1)\] 3t+c1>0 or t>c1/3 so the formula is valid for t>c1/3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{dy}{dt} = e^{3y}\]\[e^{3y}\frac{dy}{dt} = 1\]\[\int e^{3y}\frac{dy}{dt}dt = t + C_1\]\[\frac{1}{3}e^{3y} + C_2 = t + C_1\]\[e^{3y} = 3t + C_3\]\[y = \frac{1}{3}\ln (t+c)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oops! didn't get it done in time. \[y = \frac{1}{3} \ln (3t+c)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0why are there different C's in your calculation?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Just because the integration constant keeps changing as the formula evolves. C1+(another constant)=C2, for example. Numbering them isn't really necessary in this case, you can just call them all C. When the function is found you can apply the initial condition (if you have one) to find the final value of C.
