1. Find both the first and second order differentials (y' and y") for the following functions:

2. Use integrating factor to convert the following equation into "exact ODE" form and solve for y.

2xy' = (y -x) (y + x)/ y

3. Solve the differential equation, y is a function of x

y'' - 6y' + 9y = x^2x

4. Solve the differential equation, y is a function of x

2y'' - 2y' + 5y = cos(x), y(0) = 1, y'(0) = 2

5. Solve the differential equation, y is a function of x

y'= 2x + 2xy, y(1)= 2

1. Find both the first and second order differentials (y' and y") for the following functions:

a.

Using the product rule and chain rule:

Then the second derivative is:

b.

Then the second derivative is:

c.

Apply the chain rule:

Apply the product rule and chain rule:

2. Use integrating factor to convert the following equation into "exact ODE" form and solve for y.

Rearrange the equation:

Then

And

is a function of x alone, then

is an integrating factor.

So multiplying 1/x2 to the equation (1):

(2)
