DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS

A differential equation is an equation

involving an unknown function and its
derivatives.

TYPES OF DIFFERENTIAL
EQUATIONS

A differential equation is an ordinary

differential equation (ODE) if the unknown
function depends on only one independent
variable.

If the unknown function depends on two or

more independent variables, the differential
equation is a partial differential equation
(PDE)

The order of a differential equation is the

order of the highest derivative appearing in
the equation.
The degree of a differential equation whose
terms are polynomials in the derivatives is
defined as the highest power of the highest
order derivative.

General Solution is a solution containing a

number of arbitrary constants equal to the
order of the equation
Particular Solution is a solution obtained
from the general solution by giving the
particular values to the arbitrary constants

ELIMINATION OF ARBITRARY
CONSTANTS

From an equation containing arbitrary

constants, the constants may be eliminated
by the following methods:
By

differentiation and combination

By isolation of constants

Homogeneous Differential Equations

The D.E. in the form M(x, y) + N(x, y) = 0
is said to be homogeneous if
M(x, y) and N(x, y) are in the same degree
The homogeneous differential equation having the
property that f(tx, ty) =f(x, y) can be transformed into
a separable equation by making the substitution
y = vx or x = vy
along with its corresponding derivative:
y = vdx + xdv or x = vdy + ydv
The resulting equation in the variables v and x is solved
as a separable differential equation; the required
solution is obtained by back substitution.

Exact Differential Equation

The D.E. in the form M(x, y) and N(x, y) = 0
Is said to be exact if:

Method of Solution:
Integrate

all the differentials

Take the variables which are not to be integrated
to be as constants

SOLUTIONS TO FIRST-ORDER

General Solution
We

can obtain the general solution by getting its

integrating factor

Then
y

multiplying it both sides resulting to:

Bernoullis Differential Equation

Where n > 1
General Solution:

Make

this equation in linear form by representing

z = y 1-n then differentiate y in terms of z
Substitute the values the perform the method
using linear equations.

APPLICATIONS OF D.E.

Growth and Decay

Let N(t) denote the amount of substance (or
population) that is either growing or
decaying. If we assume that dN/dt. the time
rate of change of this amount of substance,
is proportional to the amount of substance
present, then
dN/dt = kN

where k is the constant of proportionality.

APPLICATIONS OF D.E.

Newtons Law of Cooling

Newton's law of cooling, which is equally
applicable to heating, states that the time
rate of change of the temperature of a body
is proportional to the temperature difference
between the body and its surrounding
medium.
