Another Inexact ODEOkay so I have another working check (2x+y^2)dx+ 4xy dy = 0 its not exact and we get an integrating factor of 1/sqrt(x) u = integrate N(x,y) dy + g(x) =2*sqrt(x)*y^2 + g(x) also partial derivative du/dx = M(x,y) = (2x+y^2)/sqrt(x) and also = y^2/sqrt(x)+g'(x) so g'(x) = 2x and g(x) = 2x^2/2 = x^2 so implicit solution is 2*sqrt(x)*y^2+x^2 Can someone please confirm or deny. |

Re: Another Inexact ODEYou have: You are right, this is not exact, so we consider: Since this is a function of just x, we obtain an integrating factor by: This gives the exact equation: thus: Integrating with respect to x, we get: To determine g(y), we take the partial derivative with respect to y and substitute N for : thus the solution is given implicitly by: |
