Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0check whether \(L(u+v) = L(u) + L(v) \) and \(L(cu) = c L(u) \) L is operator... if the equation satisfy both of these, then it's linear..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for example, \[\frac{ d^2y }{dx^2 }+(\frac{ 1x }{ 2sinx })\frac{ dy }{ dx }+2y=siny\] ,is it linear or not linear and why? @amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the degree is 1, so its linear the order is 2, since there is a 2nd derivative in there

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\left(\frac{ d^2y }{dx^2 }\right)^1+(\frac{ 1x }{ 2sinx })\left(\frac{ dy }{ dx }\right)^1+2y=siny\]
