That is actually the way to solve this ODE. If you differentiate wrt you get
- two cases
gives (subs this back into your original ODE to find conditions on and )
is the second choice
Hello guys any help would be appreciated for this question.
Show that the general solution of y=x*p + f(p) is y=cx+f(c), where p=dy/dx and c is an arbitrary constant. Also show that there is a 2nd solution obeying the diff. equation d/dp(f(p)) + x =0. Finally find the singular solution obeying both of the diff equations.
Obviously the first equation is not a separable equation. Also can't use the integrating factor since we have a function of the derivative in our equation. Can anyone tell me how do we solve this type of differential equations since is the first time I see this type? By direct differentiation of the given solution is easy to show that it is a solution but I don't think so this is a way. And after solving the first equation how do I proceed for the other parts?
Thanks in advance for any help!
Thank you very much! Substituting in the original ODE I get b=f(a), so from the first moment should I have put that y=cx+b and then find that b=f(c)? Also how do I find a singular solution obeying the two equations (y=x*p + f(p), d/dp (f(p)) + x= 0)
Thanks again very much!
