dy/dx = 3/y
First find a general solution of the differential equation. Then find a particular solution that satisfies the initial condition y(0) = 5.
*******************
A bacteria population is increasing according to the natural growth formula and numbers 100 at 12 noon and 156 at 1 p.m. Write a formula giving P(t) after t hours.
********************
Apply Euler's method to the initial value problem below so as to approximate its solution on the interval [0, ½].

dy/dx = -(y + x) ; y(0) = -1
Use step size h = 0.1.
********************
Find the particular solution of the differential equation
x(dy/dx) + 3y = 5x
subject to the initial condition y(1) = 1.
********************
The time rate of change of an alligator population P in a swamp is proportional to the square root of P. The swamp contained 9 alligators in 1990 and 25 alligators in 1995. When will there be 49 alligators in the swamp?
********************
Find the general solution of the differential equation: y'' + 2y' + 5y = 0.
********************
Solve the initial value problem: y'' + 6y' + 25y = 0; y(0) = 5, y'(0) = 1.
********************

The equation x'' + 16x = 28cos 3t; x(0) = x'(0) = 0, describes forced undamped motion of a mass on a spring. Express the position function x(t) as the sum of two oscillations.

Given a = <-4, -4> and b = <-5, -6>,
find (a) |a|
(b) |-2b|
(c) |a - b|
(d) a + b,
(e) 3a - 2b
********************
A particle moves in space. Its position vector at time t is r(t) = ti + j sin t + k cos t. Find the velocity and acceleration vectors at time t = 0.
