# EXACT DIFFERENTIAL

EQUATIONS
The expression

M ( x, y ) dx + N ( x, y ) dy ……(1)
is called exact (or Total) differential if there exist a
function f ( x , y ) of two real variables such that the
expression equals the differential df. We know that
∂f ∂f
df = dx + dy ……………….(2)
∂x ∂y ∂f
Thus if equation (1) is exact then M ( x, y) = = fx
∂x
∂f
N ( x, y) = = f y …….(3) If (1) is an exact differential
∂y
then DE
M ( x , y ) dx + N ( x , y ) dy = 0
is called an exact differential equation.
As from eqs (1), (2) & (3) we have
∂M ∂ f2
∂N ∂ f 2
= ...and... =
∂y ∂y∂x ∂x ∂x∂y

## where the functions M(x,y) and N(x,y) have continuous

first order Partial derivatives, therefore
∂ f2
∂ f 2
=
∂y∂x ∂x∂y
Hence criteria for Eq to be an Exact equation is
∂M ∂N
=
∂y ∂x
Solution of an Exact Equation
For finding of the solution of an exact
equation we integrate M(x,y) w r t x
regarding y as a constant. Then integrate w
r t y only those terms of N(x,y) which are
free from x. The sum of these two
expressions thus obtained are equated to a
constant. The solution is

∫ Mdx +
y = constant
∫ Ndy = c
Free from x
Solution of an Exact Equation (2nd Method)

If M ( x , y ) dx + N ( x , y ) dy = 0 ……(1)
is exact then there exist a function f(x,y) such that
∂f ∂f
df = dx + dy = Mdx + Ndy ..( 2)
∂x ∂y
Therefore ∂f ∂f
== N ... and ... = M.....(3)
∂y ∂x
Integrating eq (2) w r t x
f ( x, y) = ∫ Mdx +h( y )..( 4)

## Where h(y) is treated as constant of integration.

Diff eq (4) w r t y, we get ∂f ∂f dh

Using eq (3) we have

Integrating eq (5) w r t y, we obtain h(y) and hence from
eq (4) f ( x , y ) =c is the required solution of DE (1).
