need help for a differential equation
I am trying to solve a differential equation, however, i could not find the method. The equation is;

(H-z)dx+{Ax-[γ(H-z)] }dz=0

I am a master of science student in geotechnical engineering and I am not able to continue with my thesis unless I solve this equation. Thanks for any help

Does y(H - z) indicate that y is a function of H - z or does it say y times H - z?

Dear Dan,

It says y times H-z. In other words y*(H-z).
