Hi there in major help with the questions attached to this. Need to determine the particular solution of the following differential equations: 3t(tdy/dt)=7. Given that y=4 when t=2 And 1/e^x + 5= x+5 dy/dx. Given that y=2 when x=0 So stuck with these and don't know what to do.image.jpg

The differential equation in the second problem can be integrated immediately by integrating each term. Can you give that a try and post your work?

Looks pretty much like basic Calculus. I would start by writing the equation as 3dy/dt= 3t^2 7 so that, in differential form, 3dy= (3t^2 7)dt and integrating both sides 3y= t^3 6t+ C. Since y(2)= 4, 3(4)= 2^3 6(2)+ C so 12= 8 12+ C and C= 16. y(t)= (t^3 6y+16)/3.

Substituting t = 2 and y = 4 gives 6  12 = 7ln(2) + C, so C = 6  7ln(2). Hence y = t²/2  (7/3)ln(t/2) + 2.
