  • Question 38
    Case Study
    An equation involving derivatives of the dependent variable with respect to the independent variables is called a differential equation. A differential equation of the form dydx=Fx, y is said to be homogeneous if F(x, y) is a homogeneous function of degree zero, whereas a function F(x, y) is a homogenous function of degree n if Fλx, λy=λn Fx, y. To solve a homogeneous differential equation of the type dydx=Fx, y= gyx , we make the substitution = vx and then separate the variables.

    Based on the above, answer the following questions:
    (I) Show that (x2y2) dx + 2xy dy = 0 is a differential equation of the type dydx=gyx.
    (II) Solve the above equation to find its general solution. VIEW SOLUTION
