I just tried using Laplace transforms but i get a slightly different solution. Almost the same. What method did you use?

You are NOT asked to solve the equation. You are given a function and asked to show it is the solution.

If

what is y'(x)? what is y"(x)? What is y(0)? What is y'(0)?

characteristic equation of second grade ordinary diff eq. and then parameter variation method... that's the way i think is done

that's cheating lol i know it'd work but u gotta get the solution by solving the diff eq... what if you didn't have the answer........(Giggle) - Nov 4th 2008, 05:53 PMBlack Kawairothlite
well i got the answer few days ago, been busy lately but for the record im gonna post the answer..as usual if im wrong correct me plz... :D

so i got the general solution

so

remember that

then the general solution is:

now i gotta get the particular solution which i got with parameters variation method...

so:

where and are unknown but according to the formula:

;

where

and

then

so

and the particular solution is:

and finally

now the initial values:

so

so

then the solution for the initial values is:
