What method would I use to solve ode that look like

x'' + sin(x)=0. And

x' + sin(x)=0?

They are different problems so not a system. On a side not, is there a quick way to numerically solve with Matlab?

Any help appreciated.

Thanks for the result. That's around the direction i was thinking with the 1st order on. Would I solve the 2nd order ODE the same way, or is there another method I should try? Thanks!
