    Mathcad Diff. Eq

    Does anyone have any ideas on how to solve diff. equations like the one attached in matlab or mathcad? I know that I need to have initial boundary conditions in order to solve but I'm not sure about anything else?

    I haven't looked at your specific equation, but have you tried dsolve?

    DSOLVE Symbolic solution of ordinary differential equations.
    DSOLVE('eqn1','eqn2', ...) accepts symbolic equations representing
    ordinary differential equations and initial conditions. Several
    equations or initial conditions may be grouped together, separated
    by commas, in a single input argument.

    By default, the independent variable is 't'. The independent variable
    may be changed from 't' to some other symbolic variable by including
    that variable as the last input argument.

    The letter 'D' denotes differentiation with respect to the independent
    variable, i.e. usually d/dt. A "D" followed by a digit denotes
    repeated differentiation; e.g., D2 is d^2/dt^2. Any characters
    immediately following these differentiation operators are taken to be
    the dependent variables; e.g., D3y denotes the third derivative
    of y(t). Note that the names of symbolic variables should not contain
    the letter "D".
