Substitution Methods and Exact Equations

Homogeneous Equations:
Dy/dx = F(y/x)

v = y/x, y = vx, dy/dx = v + x(dv/dx)

x(dv/dx) = F(v) - v

Bernoulli Equations:

dv/dx + (1-n) P(x)v = (1-n) Q(x)

Criterion for Exactness:

F(x,y) = ∫ M(x, y) dx + g(y)

Verify that the given differential equation is exact; then solve it.

31. (2x + 3y) dx + (3x + 2y) dy = 0

Answer: x2 + 3xy +y2 = C

35. (x3 + y/x) dx + (y2 + lnx) dy = 0

Answer: 3x4 +4y3 +12ylnx = C

38. (x + tan-1y) dx + ((x +y) / (1 + y2)) dy = 0

Answer: x2 + 2xtan-1y + ln(1 +y2) = C
