Differential Equation Application

1) Find the equilibrium solution of the differential equation:

Dy/dt = 3y(1-(1/2)y)

Sketch the slope field and use it to determine whether each equilibrium is stable or unstable.

2) Consider the initial value problem
Y^1 = 4 - y^2, y(0) = 1

Use the Euler's method with 5 steps to estimate y(1). Sketch the field and use it to determine whether the estimate is an overestimate or an underestimate.

3) Find the Taylor polynomial of degree 4 as an approximation of the Solution of the initial problem.

Y^1 - 2x^2 + y^2 = 0, y (0) = 2
