I'm having trouble solving this differential equation (1 - x^2) y' - xy = x I'm not sure about the integrating factor is it (1 - x^2) ^(1/2) or 1/ ((1 - x^2)^(1/2) (or maybe its neither!). Please help.

\[(1-x^2)\frac{dy}{dx} -xy = x\]

@ph1 - yes - I remembered that I'm (to my shame) confuse by the algebra

\[ e^{ab} = \left(e^a\right)^b \] so \[ e^{\ln(1-x^2)\cdot \frac{1}{2}}=\left(e^{\ln(1-x^2)}\right)^\frac{1}{2} \] \[= (1-x^2)^\frac{1}{2}= \sqrt{1-x^2} \]

I would expect to see \[\sqrt{1-x^2}y = \int\limits \sqrt{1-x^2}\frac{x}{1-x^2} dx\] the integral gives \[ - \sqrt{1-x^2}+ A\] so \[\sqrt{1-x^2}y = A - \sqrt{1-x^2} \] and finally \[ y= \frac{A}{\sqrt{1-x^2}} - 1\]
phi
  • phi
though you could have tossed in a minus sign on both sides before integrating ?

hmm i'm confused how come the integral is negative of square root bit?

i'm allergic to integration!!!
phi
  • phi
\[\int\limits \sqrt{1-x^2}\frac{x}{1-x^2} dx = \int (1-x^2)^{- \frac{1}{2}} x dx\] u is 1-x^2 and du = -2x dx we need a -2 so multiply and divide by -2: \[- \frac{1}{2} \int (1-x^2)^{- \frac{1}{2}} -2x dx\] we now have \[- \frac{1}{2} \int u^{- \frac{1}{2}} du= - \frac{1}{2} \cdot 2 u^{\frac{1}{2}} \]

oh ok - I used the following standard form which probably isnt valid in this case Integral x dx / sqrt(a^2 + x^2) = sqrt (a^2 + x^2)
phi
  • phi
except you have a^2 - x^2 not a^2 + x^2
phi
  • phi
maybe the Greeks had the right idea, stick with positive rational numbers at all times
phi
  • phi
then none of these stray minus signs to keep track of.

yep this is probably a silly question but since the left hand side is the result of the product rule shoudntt it be - y sqrt(1 - x^2) ?
cwrw238
  • cwrw238
yes its the signs which have confused me here
phi

The integrating factor is sqrt(1-x^2). It is positive. call the integrating factor F(x) and start with dy/dx + P(x) y = Q(x) F(x) * dy/dx + F(x)*P(x) y = F(x)*Q(x) and F(x) dy + P(x) y F(x) dx = F(x)Q(x) dx remember F(x) = exp(integral(P(x))) d F(x) = P(x) exp( integral(P(x))) dx we could work through the details, but it looks ok to me. we hae F(x) dy + y d (F(x)) = F(x)Q(x) dx or d( F(x) y) = F(x)Q(x) dx
phi
  • phi
the "tricky part" is taking the derivative of \[ \frac{d}{dx} e^{\int P(x) dx} = e^{\int P(x) dx} \cdot \frac{d}{dx}\int P(x) dx= e^{\int P(x) dx} \cdot P(x) dx\]
