    Thank you. But it's a non-linear first order differential equation because we have y^2 and we are not able to use an integrating factor. How are you suggesting to solve it?

    i never mentioned something like "integrating" factor, what are you talking about?

    i talked about a separable ODE, that's all, you can integrate directly.
