Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[y''+ky=0 \implies y=A \cos(\sqrt k t)+B \sin(\sqrt k t)\] From here you can plug in the initial conditions

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Since the boundary conditions are homogeneous, your nontrivial solution (the case \(k>0\)) will be a Fourier sine series. For \(k\leqslant0\), you'll get trivial solutions.
