## ODE question!

The following equation arises in the mathematical modeling of reverse osmosis.

(sin t)y'' - 2(cos t)y' - (sin t)y = 0, 0 < t < pi

Find a general solution. Hint: First observe that y = cos t is as solution, but the sine function is not a solution. To find a second solution, apply the reduction of order technique.
