1.By substitution y = vx , show that x(x+y)dy/dx = x^2 + y^2 is y + x ln ((x-y)^2 /x) = 0 when y = 0 and x = 1.

2.dx/dt = g(1- e^-kt)/k , express x in terms of g,k and t.

Okay, if y= vx, then dy/dx= v+ x dv/dx. What do you get when you replace y by vx and dy/dx by v+ x dv/dx?

The second looks like a straightforward integration. - March 26th 2013, 06:23 PMProve ItRe: Find particular solution by substitution
Are g and k constants?
