Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What are the steps to the integration of the equation? \[\int \frac{dy}{2y+1} \\ \frac{dt}{dy} = 2y+1 \\ \int dt = \int\\ \int \frac{dt}{t} = \ln t \\ \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[t=2y+1 \\ \frac{1}{t}=\frac{1}{2y+1} \\ \frac{dt}{dy}=2 \\\] Is this true? \[\int\frac{dt}{t} = \int \frac{dy}{2y+1}\quad\mbox{?} \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if I set \[u=2y+1\\ \frac{\mathrm du}{\mathrm dy}= 2\\ \frac{1}{u}\frac{\mathrm du}{\mathrm dy}=\frac{1}{2y+1}2 \\ \frac{1}{2}\int \frac{\mathrm du}{u}=\int\frac{1}{2y+1}\mathrm dy \\ \int \frac{\mathrm du}{u} = \ln u = \ln (2y +1)\\ \int\frac{1}{2y+1}\mathrm dy =\frac{1}{2}\int \frac{\mathrm du}{u}=\frac{1}{2}\ln (2y +1) \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\int\frac{1}{2y+1}\mathrm dy = \int \mathrm dx \\ \frac{1}{2}\ln (2y +1) + c_1= x + c_2\\ \ln (2y +1) = 2x + 2c_2 c_1\\ 2y+1=e^{2x+2c_2c_1}\\ 2y+1=e^{2x+c_3}\\ y=\frac{1}{2}e^{c_3}e^{2x}\\ y=\frac{1}{2}Ce^{2x} \] This looks right for the first question.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[ dy/dx = 2y+1 \] is seperable in the sense that we can form \[g(y)~dy = f(x)~dx\] \[ dy/dx = 2y+1 \] \[ \frac{1}{2y+1}dy = dx \] \[\int \frac{1}{2y+1}dy =\int dx \] \[\frac12ln(2y+1) =x+C \] keep in mind the that +C is an all encompassing constant: therefore 2C and c1+c2 and the like are contained within it. \[ln(2y+1) =2x+C \] \[2y+1 =e^{2x+C} \] \[2y =e^{2x+C}1 \] \[y =\frac12e^{2x+C}\frac12 \] \[y =\frac12Ce^{2x}\frac12 \] so tahts fine

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2y' + xy = x dy/dx = x(1y) dy/(1y) = x dx that can be seperated as well

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so yeah we can lump `1/2e^C` by a new name `C`

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah, I understand that, my mistake was that I was thinking of the rootsolving methods involving homogeneous higherorder DE's, and thinking of homogeneous solutions, where y_1 and y_2 are multiplied by a *different* arbitrary constant than the original ones obtained from integration, e.g. I thought that \[\frac {1}{2}e^{2x+C}\frac{1}{2}\]was itself a single solution to a homogeneous higherorder DE, which it clearly *is not*, so I was multiplying it by c_1 in my mind. Totally different technique. Thanks, nonetheless!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[y_h = c_1y_1+ c_2y_2\]That's what I was thinking of.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\(y = \frac {1}{2}e^{2x+C}\frac{1}{2}\) is the general solution and represents all the family of curves that satisfy the DE in question... as you said the arbitrary constant is already there and there wont be any more solutions

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0whle cooking up homogeneous solution for higher order DEs, we take all the linear combinations of all the independent solutions

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so we get : \[\large y_h = \sum c_iy_i\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\(\large y_i\)'s are the independent solutions to the homogeneous part
