Please show problem step by step I need very detailed info so I can memorize steps for upcoming quiz. Scanned work is ok as long as I can read it. y''- 4y =2; y1= e^(-2x). See attached file for full problem description.

Power Series Method

1. Use the power series method to solve the following initial value problem (other methods are not acceptable) xy" ? xy' + y ? = 0, y(0) = 1, y'(0) = 2. Your answer must be in closed from. That is, your answer must not have infinitely many terms. Remember that you MUST show all work. 2. Find the general solution of the diffe

Using theorems to determine derivative

(See attached file for full problem description) Using the fundamental theorem of calculus and chain rule, For example, letting the expression equal F(x), and G(u) So for 1) we would have F(x)=G(x ) By the chain rule, dF/dx(x)=(dG/du)|u= x (du/dx) =(1/ | u=x ) (2x) =2x// Determine the derivative: 1) d/dx

Finding implicit form from differential equations

1. find the solution of the initial-value problem: dy/dx = (sin(3x))/(2+cos(3x)), y=4 when x=0 using equation: (f'(x))/(f(x)) dx = ln(f(x)) +c (f(x) > 0) when integrating. 2. a. find in implicit form, the general solution of the differential equation: dy/dx = (4y^(1/2)(e^-x -e^x))/ ((e^x +

Find formula for sequence

Hi, I need to find a formula for the sequence below by first finding a recurrence for a_n, then solving the recurrence. Thanks! a_n = 1/2 + 2/4 + 3/8 + 4/16 + 5/32 + · · · + n/(2^n) = sum_{k=1}^n (k /(2^k))


1. A function f(z) is said to be periodic with a period a, a is not equal to zero. if f(z+ma) =f(z), where m is an integer different from zero. prove that a function, which has two distinct periods say, a and b which are not integer multiples of the other- can not be regular in the entire complex plane. Note: Doubly p

Calculus Problems

1. A corporation manufactures a product at two locations. The cost of producing x units at a location one and y unites at location two are C1(x)=.01x^2 + 2x + 1000 and C2(y)=.03y^2 + 2y + 300, respectively. If the product sells for $14 per unit, find the quantity that must be produced at each location to maximize the profit P(

Questions on rectilinear motion in basic mechanics

I need help doing two calculus problems #11, and #13. Each one is 5 parts (a,b,c,d,e) I have attached 3 files a) class notes for rectilinear motion b) the assignment (only problems 11 and 13) and my initial work on #11. I understand how to calculate 11 a, b, c but I get stuck on d, e. Can you explain what is going on and d

Proof of a property of Wronskian for a given differential equation.

Suppose that y1, y2 are linearly independent solutions to the differential equation: a2 (x) y'' + a1 (x) y' + a0 (x) y = 0. a) Show that a2 (y1 y2'' - y2 y1'') + a1(y1 y2' - y1' y2) = 0 b) show that (a) implies a2 W' + a1 W = 0 {here W means the Wronskian) c) show that the equation in (b) implies W

Frobenius Method

Use a power series method to find the solution of x^2 y'' + 2xy' + 4y = 0 that is valid in any interval not including the singular point. y=0 is a trivial solution which exists for any linear Homogeneous equation. So it is correct but absolutely not enough to complete the problem. Since the equation is linear and has non

Solving a differential equation with initial condition.

A relation between a function f(x) and its derivative f'(x) = x√f(x) is given with an initial condition on f(x) as f(4)=16. One needs to find the value of the second derivative of the function i.e., f"(4). Also an expression to f(x) in terms of x is to be evaluated. Please see the attached file for the fully formatted
