    y''+y'^4sin(y)=0 Reduction of order.

    Anyone able to have a look over this and tell me if I'm on the right track with it? The original question had the power raised to 3 but as this is an assignment question I've bumped the power up by 1 to avoid any possible plagiarism issues.

    Re: y''+y'^4sin(y)=0 Reduction of order.

    The reduction of order leads to a first order ODE wich solutions are expressed in term of a Jacobi elliptic function :
