I'm looking for functions that satisfy:

(k being a constant)

So far I am aware that works, but are there any other functional forms out there that would also work?

Thanks

NO, no, no! That's not what "separating" means. You cannot treat the "y" on the right as if it were a constant while integrating dy on the left.

Instead you need to actually**separate**x and y.

Now, integrate both sides to get and take the exponential of both sides: where .

This yields the following relationship:

Which is tantalizingly close to the proportion I was looking for, but not quite.

I don't mind the "c" being in there, but is there some way to get the y to not be squared?
