can anyone help me how to solve this homogenous equation please: [x csc (y/x)  y] dx + x dy = 0 ..its says here that the answer should be ln l x/c l = cos (y/x)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i'll try :) our prof didn't really explained it to us very well the steps in solving it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0usually you have to do substitution and then argh I forgot... a. I didn't have trig involved for my odes b. substitution was my least favorite.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3\[(\csc(v)v)+(v+v'x)=0\\csc(v)+xv'=0\\xv'=\csc(v)\\x\frac{dv}{dx}=\frac{1}{\sin(v)}\\\sin(v)dv=\frac{dx}{x}\\\] now apply integral both sides

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh there it is the dv/dx has to be on the left and eventually that nasty problem turns into a simple separation of variables.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\(\color{#000000 }{ \displaystyle \sin(v){\tiny~~}dv=\frac{dx}{x} }\) and you integrate both sides... Just go, "magic", Blah Blah Blah?\ \(\color{#000000 }{ \displaystyle \color{red}{\int}\sin(v){\tiny~~}dv=\color{red}{\int}\frac{dx}{x} }\) \(\tt Or,{\tiny~~~}are{\tiny~~~}you{\tiny~~~}integrating{\tiny~~~}with{\tiny~~~}respect{\tiny~~~}to{\tiny~~~}a{\tiny~~~}variable?\) Maybe something like this?\(\tiny\\[0.8em]\) \(\color{#000000 }{ \displaystyle \sin(v){\tiny~~}dv=\frac{dx}{x} }\)\(\tiny\\[1.4em]\) \(\color{#000000 }{ \displaystyle \sin(v){\tiny~~}\frac{dv}{dx}=\frac{1}{x} }\) and then, pam parara! \(\color{#000000 }{ \displaystyle \color{red}{\int}\sin(v){\tiny~~}\frac{dv}{dx}\color{red}{dx}=\color{red}{\int}\frac{1}{x}\color{red}{dx} }\) I am just asking... Found this thread, but I know that this is a little wierd that I am replying to a 5monthold thread.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeahhhh....I don't understand how some users have the desire to post comments on an old thread but the first comment is the correct way of doing the problem. first substitution and then towards the end it becomes a simple (or hopefully...not that complex) separation of variables.
