Ordinary differential equations

Problem A: Suppose that a giant HD-ready television of mass m falls from rest towards earth and its parachute opens at time t=0. when its speed is v(0)=v0 Since the TV is massive assume the drag force is proportional to the square of the velocity. Write a complete model for the velocity v(t) What is the asymptotic behavi

Mechanical displacement - Steel ball problem

A steel ball weighing 128 pounds (mass= 4 slugs) is suspended from a spring. This stretches the spring 128/485 feet. The ball is started in motion from the equilibrium position with a downward velocity of 9 feet per second. The air resistance (in pounds) of the moving ball numerically equals 4 times its velocity (in feet p

Classification of first order ordinary differential equations

In order to solve differential equations, it is helpful to classify them as belonging to one or more categories. In this entry we will consider three common classes of first order ordinary differential equations (ODEs): separable, exact and linear. We will show how each class is defined.
