I found the solution as: \[y=(3/2)\sin(2t)+(3/4t)\cos(2t)+(c/t)\] which it says is correct, but then it goes on to say that the general solution is: \[y=(3/2)\sin(2t)\] and I'm not sure how they got that

I think it has something to do with the solution changing as t>infinity

as t approacs infinity the other two expressions approach zero.

Is it (3/(4t))cos(2t) or (3t/4)cos(2t)?

It is (3/(4t))cos(2t)

\(\large \lim_{t>\inf} (3/2)\sin(2t)+\frac{3}{4t}\cos(2t)+(c/t)\) \(=(3/2)\sin(2t)+0*\cos(2t)+0\)

essentially as t approaches infinity we still see oscillating behavior in y, but the effects of the cos term and c/t are greatly reduced to the point they are negligible.

Thank you! If I just take the limit as t>infinity, then what is the point of adding that t>0?

I'm not particularly sure either, but I will try to make sense out of it.

Alright, well thank you!

There may be a case where you take the natural logarithm of an expression, and in that case t must be greater than 0. I think that is why they have that restriction.

I mean while doing the computation, you must take the natural logarithm with an expression with t or a multiple of t, and if t<=0 the operation is undefined.
