If you were to differentiate with respect to t, remembering that p is a function of t, we have
I am following an example on a text book where the author is solving the next equation:
dp/dt = (p-900)/2
or if p is different than 900,
1/(p-900)dp/dt = 1/2 (so far so good for me)
But here the author states that by the chain rule the right hand side of the last equation is the derivative of ln|p-900| with respect to t:
d/dt (ln|p-900|) = 1/2
I really do not understand this last step. Any help will be very much appreciated
The reference of the book is: Boyce, DiPrima "Elementary Differential Equations"
