    Separation of variables is needed.

    Put the problem in this form and the integrate both sides. \[g(p) dp=f(t) dt \]

    You can picture those k, r , and v's being like 1,2, and 3's. They are just constants. You need your P's together and your t's together. I don't care and you shouldn't care where this puts the constants.

    You can actually leave k on the side it is on or divide both sides by k. It doesn't matter.

    this is what I got: \[P=\exp(\frac{ k }{ 2r }\sin(2rt-2v)+\frac{ kt }{ 2 })\] However, this is what I should be getting according to the answer n my tutorial: \[P=\exp((\frac{ k }{ 2r }\sin(2rt-2v)+\frac{ kt }{ 2 }\]\[+\frac{ k }{ 2r }\sin(2v))\]

    dP/dt=kP cos(rt-v)^2 dP/P=kcos(rt-v)^2dt ln(P)=(k/3r)cos(rt-v)^3 check with taking the Derivative with chain rule P=C1EXP[(k/3r)cos(rt-v)^3
