    first order differential equation

    y' = \frac{1}{y}

    Any ideas on how to solve this? I tried to get it in the form:

    y' + p(t)y = g(t)

    Once it's in that form I know how to solve it. But, I don't think it's possible to get it in that form.

    Could someone point me in the right direction?

    Thanks!

    (separated variables).
