    First order DE

    Hi,

    I have the following DE:

    y' + ycos~x = sin2x

    So i have e^{\int cos~x} = e^{sinx}

    Multiply both sides by this factor and integrate. Gives me.

    ye^{sinx} = \int e^{sinx} \cdot 2sin~x\cdot cos~x

    This is where im stuck, how to i integrate the right hand side?

    Dear Jones,

    \int{e^{sinx}sin2x~dx}

    Substitute,~u=e^{sinx}\Rightarrow{sinx=lnu}

    du=e^{sinx}cosx~dx

    =\int{u\times{2}\times{sinx}\times{cosx}\frac{du}{  ucosx}}

    =\int{2\ln{u}~du}

    =2\int{lnu~du}

    =2\left[ulnu-u\right]+C~;~Where~C~is~an~arbitary~constant.

    =2\left[e^{sinx}sinx-e^{sinx}\right]+C

    Hope this will help you.

    Thank you very much Sudharaka.

    I hate myself for not seeing that obvious substitution
