Hello! I was trying to solve a Laplace's Equation and I got stuck on this step.
Here's the original question:
So I assumed
Used separation of variables:
And I got:
And I don't know how to solve for Y
Here's my equation:

Notice that is just an eigenvalue, so this is really just a second order linear ODE. So, treating as a single coefficient, we get that
I thought of that too but it looked really messy to me so I didn't take it as an answer.
I think I could also do this:
Because I think this form works better with the initial conditions. =P
