DEFINITIONS AND NOTATIONS
1. A differential equation (abbreviated as D.E.) is one which contains at least
one derivative. Most often, a D.E. is written in terms of differential a more
convenient form for analysis and solutions.
2. When an equation involves one or more derivatives with respect to a
particular variable, the variable is called an independent variable. A
variable is called dependent if a derivative of that variable occurs. In
the equation
+
i is the dependent variable, t is the independent variable and L, R, C, E
and [ are called parameters.
The equation
has one dependent variable V and independent variable x and y.
3. Ordinary differential equations are those in which all the differential coefficients
have reference to a single independent variable.
Examples:
(1)
(2)
=
(3)
OBJECTIVES: After completing this topic, you will be able to:
1. define differential equation.
2. differentiate dependent to independent variables.
3. identify the order and degree of differential equations.
4. define a solution.
5. discuss the types of solutions.
6. identify a linear and nonlinear differential equations.
9
4. Partial differential equations are those wherein there are two or more
independent variables and partial differential coefficients with reference to any
of them.
Example:
(4)
(5)
5. The order of a D.E. is the same as the order of the highestorder derivative in
the equation.
Example:
Equation
(1) first order
(2) third order
(3) second order
(4) first order
(5) second order
6. The degree of a D.E. is the same as the power (or exponent) to which the
derivative of the highest order in the equation raised.
Example:
Equation
(1) first degree
(2) second degree
(3) third degree
(4) first degree
(5) first degree
7. The solution to a D.E. is the relation involving only the variables and arbitrary
constants free from any derivatives or differentials, and consistent with, or
satisfying, the given D.E.
8. Kinds of Solutions: There are three kinds of solutions of differential equations.
They are:
1. The general solution, which is the solution containing a
number of arbitrary constants equal to the order of the equation.
2. The particular solution, which is the solution obtained
from the general solution by giving particular values to the
constants.
3. The singular solution, which is the solution not containing
any arbitrary constant and is not deducible from the general
solution by giving particular values to the arbitrary constants in it,
save in exceptional cases.
10
Arbitrary constants maybe obtained from known boundary
conditions.
9. The functional notation for the nthorder D.E. of the ordinary type is:
10. A firstordered D.E. is written in either of the following common forms:
1. ImplicitDerivative:
2. ImplicitDifferential:
3. ExplicitDerivative:
11. Considering the differential equation as derived from the general solution, the
latter is called the complete primitive of the former.
12. An equation which is linear, i.e., of the first degree in the dependent variable and
its derivatives, is called linear differential equation. From this definition it
follows that the most general (ordinary) linear differential equation of order n is
of the form:
Eq. 1 p
0
(x)y
(n)
+ p
1
(x) y
( n  1)
+ . . . + p
n 1
(x) y + p
n
(x) y = r (x)
A differential equation which is not linear, i.e., cannot be put in
the form of Eq. 1, is said to be nonlinear. In general, linear
equations are much easier to solve than nonlinear ones, and most
elementary applications involve linear equations.
Examples:
1. The equation y + 4xy + 2y = cos x is a linear
equation of the second order. The presence of the terms x,
y and cos x does not alter the fact that the equation is
linear because, by definition, linearity is determined solely
by the way the dependent variable y and its derivatives
occur in the equation.
2. The equation y + 4yy + 2y = cosx is a nonlinear
equation because of the occurrence of the product y and
one of its derivatives.
3. The equation y + sin y = 0 is nonlinear because of the
presence of sin y, which is a nonlinear function of y.
13. Initial Value Problem: By an initial value problem for an nthorder differential
equation
11
we mean: Find a solution to the differential equation on an interval I that
satisfies at x
0
the n initial conditions
y(x
0
) = y
0
.
.
where x
0
I and y
0
, y
1
, . . . . , y
n1
are given conditions.
In the case of a firstorder equation, the initial conditions reduce to the single
requirement
y(x
0
) = y
0
,
and in the case of a secondorder equation, the initial conditions have the form
y(x
0
) = y
0
,
The terminology initial conditions comes from mechanics, where the
independent variable x represents time and customarily symbolized as t. then if t
0
is the
starting time, y(t
0
) = y
0
represents the initial location of an object and y(t
0
) gives its
initial velocity.
Examples:
1. Show that J(x) = sin x cos x is a solution to the initial value problem
Solution: Observe that J(x) = sin x cos x ,
cos sin
 sin x + cos x are all defined on (g, g). Substituting into the differential
equation gives
(sin x + cos x) + (sin x cos x) = 0
12
which holds for all x (g, g). Hence, J(x) is a solution to the given differential
equation on (g, g). When we check the initial conditions, we find
J(0) = sin x cos 0 = 1
J
cos
which meets the requirements of the given equation. Therefore, J(x) is a
solution to the given initial value problem.

FORMATION OF DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS
2.1 An inverse Problem: Elimination of Arbitrary Constants
2.1.1 By Differentiation and Combination
One of the ways differential equations are obtained is the elimination of arbitrary
constants from a given equation. The general method to eliminate n arbitrary constants
is to differentiate the equation n times.
The n arbitrary constants may then be eliminated from the n + 1 equations. The result
will be differential equations of order n.
Eliminate the arbitrary constants from the given equations by combining after
differentiation.

2.1.3 Elimination By Determinants
A third method of eliminating arbitrary constants is based on a theorem in Algebra:
In order for a system of n + 1 linear equations in n unknowns to be consistent,
the determinant formed from the coefficients of the unknowns and the terms free
of the unknowns must vanish.
The determinant formed is called the eliminant of the arbitrary constants.
For the following problems, eliminate the arbitrary constants using determinants.
Example 212 y = Ax
2
+ Be
x
Solution: Differentiate the equation twice.
y = 2Ax + Be
x
y = 2A + Be
x
Form the determinant whose elements are the coefficients of the arbitrary
constants A and B, and the terms y, y and y, which are free of the arbitrary
constants.
20
Since e

is a common factor of the term in the third column. Expanding the
determinant, we obtain

2.2 Differential Equation of A Family of Curves
A family of curves of curves on a plane is usually defined by an
equation containing one or more parameters together with the

family is obtained by eliminating
the parameters by the methods in Art. 21
In the following problems obtain the differential equations of the given families of
curves whose properties are indicated.

The coefficients as are generally functions of x.
2.Connected with the HHOLDE is an auxiliary equation having the form,
a

m
n

1
m
n1
+ . . . + a
n1
m + a
n
= 0
where m which replaced D, is called the auxiliary or characteristic
equation. The form of the solution of HHOLDE depends upon the nature
of the roots of the auxiliary equation.
Four cases arises:
Case 1. The auxiliary equation has real and distinct roots. None of
which is repeated. If the real and distinct roots of the auxiliary equation
are m
1

Case 2. The auxiliary equation has real and repeated roots. Suppose a root m

the auxiliary equation is real and multiplicity p, then the part of the

Case 3. The auxiliary equation has some complex or imaginary roots, none of
which is repeated. If all the as are real constants, then the complex
roots of the auxiliary equation will occur in conjugate pairs. Let a s bi be
such a pair. Then the part of the solution of HHOLDE for this pair is
y = e

(c

cos bx + c
2
sin bx)
Case 4. The auxiliary equation has some repeated complex or imaginary roots. If
the conjugate pair a s bi is a root of the auxiliary equation repeated p
times, then the part of the solution of HHOLDE for these roots is
y = e

(1) Based form the roots of the auxiliary equation, write the given D.E
as
a
o
(D r
1
)(D r
2
) . . . (D r
n
)y = f(x)
and let z = (D r

)y
This will reduce the D.E. to
95
a
o
(D r
1
)z= f(x)
which is now a FOLDE (SECTION 3.5) and can be solved in the form
z = g(x)
(2) Substitute this back into z,
(D r
2
) . . . (D r
n
)y = g(x)
and let v = (D r
3
) . . . (D r
n
)y
reducing to the form
(D r
2
) v = g(x)
which is again a FOLDE and can be solved as
v = h(x)
(3) Once more substitute v to its original value and repeat the
procedure until the last factor is reached, that is,
(D r
n
)y = J (x)
which will finally give,
y = y
p
= F(x)
REMARK: Since y

is a particular solution, the constant of integration is
omitted in the procedure outlined above. The value of y

complete the solution by using the theorems on homogeneous D.E.

1.2 Physical Applications of Ordinary Differential Equations
1.2.1 Law of Exponential Change
In the physical world, there are elements/objects
which continually undergo changes. Bacteria, for
example, increases its count with time, while
radioactive elements decreases its strength or
energy as time increases. It may be possible that the
rate at which the amount of this element or object is
proportional (or ONLY approximately proportional) to
the amount at any instant. In which case, the
complete behavior of the element or object as it
undergoes change may be defined by an exponential
function in the following manner:
(2) From the above stated rate of change,
dA = k A
dt
where: A is the amount of the element or object at any instant.
(3) Separation of variables and integration gives,
Ln A = kt + C
or A = e
kt + C
= e
kt
e
C
Finally, A = C e
kt
NOTE:
109
(ii) For the basic equation, A = C e
kt
, to be completely defined, two (2)
boundary conditions are necessary for the determination of the
arbitrary constants C and k.
(iii) From the resulting basic equation, the law that defines this process is
termed law of exponential change.
(iv) When k > 0: Change is known as growth.
When k < 0: Change is called decay.
Example 76: A certain radioactive element follows the law of exponential change
and has a halflife of 38 hours. Find (a) how long it takes for 90% of the radioactivity
of the element to be dissipated; (b) the percentage of radioactivity that remains after 76
hours. (NOTE: Halflife of an element is the time required for 50% of the
radioactivity to be dissipated.)
Solution:
Let R
P
= percentage of radioactivity of the element at any instant
Basic Equation: R
P
= C e
kt
.
Given: When t = 0 (present time); R
P
= 100%
When t = 38 hrs (halflife); R
P
= 50%
Required: When t = ? ; R
P
= 10%
When t = 76 hrs; R
P
= ?
From the GIVEN conditions,
(1) 100% = Ce

and C = 100%
(2) 50% = C e
38k
= 100% e
38j
and e
38k
= 0.50
38k =  0.693
k =  0.018
So, R
P

(4) For R
P

10% = 10% e
0.018t
e
0.018t
= 0.10
0.018t =  2.30

Example 77: A bacterial population follows the law of exponential change. If
between noon and 2:00 P.M. the population triples, at what time would the population
become 100 times what it was at noon? At 10:00 A.M., what was the percentage of the
bacterial population in terms of the population at noon?

Time is: 8:22.2 P.M. Answer
(3) When t = 2 hours (10 A.M.)
P
b
= P
o
e
0.55(2)

So, at 10:00 A.M., the bacterial population was 33% of the
population at noon.

Example 78: The rate of change of the male population of a particular barangay is
proportional to the male population at any time. If the present male population of the
barangay is 30,000 and ten (10) years ago, there were 20,000 males in the barangay,
when will the population double its present count? How many males were there 4

(2) 20,000 = C e
10k

10k
e
10k

10k =  0.405
k = 0.405
So, P

(ii) Five (5) minutes further, the thermometer was taken back indoors.
The reading here is,
119
T
b

So, in bringing back the thermometer indoors,

Kirchhoffs laws.
(2) The first law of Kirchhoff states that the algebraic sum of all the potentials around
a closed electric circuit is zero. Applying in this law to the SEC being considered,
we have
E E
L
E
R
E
c
= 0
where: E
L
= L dI (volt)
dt
E
R
= RI (volt)
E
C
= Q (volt)
C
So, L dI + RI + Q = E

and L d

Q + RdQ + Q = E

dt C
NOTE: (i) The two (2) basic equations used in SEC are:
(1) When the capacitance is not present,
L dI + RI = E
dt
(2) With the capacitance in the SEC,

Q + RdQ + Q = E

or ( LD

With D = d

(ii) The inductance L is a circuit parameter which opposes a change in
the current I (ampere) causing a potential drop of E
L
.
(iii) The resistance R is a circuit parameter which opposes the current I
causing a potential drop E
R
.
(iv) The capacitance C is a circuit parameter which opposes a change in the
voltage causing a potential drop E

.
(v) The current I is the rate of change of the electric chanrge Q(coulomb) or
I = dQ

Example 711 A coil of inductance 1 henry and resistance 10 ohms is connected in
series with an EMF of E
o
sin 10t volts. When t = 0, the current is zero. If I = 5 amperes
when t = 0.1 second, what must be the value of E
o
?
Solution: This is a SEC where there is NO capacitance, and so the basic equation is,
L dI + RI = E
dt
where: L = 1 henry
R = 10 ohms
E = E
o
sin 10t volts
(i) Substitute all known values,
1 dI + 10 I = E
o
sin 10t (FOLDE)
dt
with P = 10; Q = E
o
sin 10t ; J = e
10t
127
(ii) Solution is: I J = Q J dt + C
I e

sin 10t e

Evaluate the integral to get,
I e

(

(10 sin 10t 10 cos 10t) + C
200
or I = E
o
(sin 10t cos 10t) + C e
10t
20
But I = 0 when t = 0, giving C = Eo
20
So, I = E
o
(sin 10t cos 10t + e
10t
)
20
(iii) Finally, for t = 0.1 second, I = 5 amperes,
5 = E

giving E

= 149 volts

an inductance of 0.1 henry, a resistance of 10 ohms, and a capacitance of 250
microfarad. Find the steadystate solutions of the charge Q and the current I in terms of
the time t. Also determine the maximum values of the steadystate Q and I.
Solution: This is SEC contains all the parameters L, R, and C.

where: L = 0.10 henry
R = 10 ohms
C = 250 x 10

E = 110 sin 400t volts
(i) Substitute all known values,
128
(0.10D

(ii) With the computed value, we have
Q
ss
=  0.00275 (3 sin 400t + cos 400t) Answer
and
I
ss
= 1.10(sin 400t 3 cos 400t) Answer
(iii) To dtermine the maximum values of Q
ss
and I
ss
sset their derivatives rto
zero, solve for the time t and substitute back to the basic
equations of Q
ss
and I
ss
.
(1) dQ
ss
=
_
0.00275 (1200 cos 400t 400 sin 400t) = 0
or 400 t = 1.25 radians
So, max. Q
ss
= 0.00275( 3 sin 1.25 + cos 1.25)
= 0.0087 coulomb Answer
(2) dI
ss
= 1.10 (400 cos 400t + 1200 sin 400t) = 0
or 400t =  0.32 radian
So, max. I
ss
= 1.10(  sin 0.32  3 cos 1.25)
