A first integral is  











Problem 2Edit

Solve eqn. 2 on (p.13-1) for  .

Problem Statement: Given a first integral  of a L2_ODE_VC, solve for  .


where k1 and k2 are const, and  

Eq. (1) is in the form   where



so it satisfies the 1st condition of exactness.

Check if   for the 2ndcondition of exactness



  so we do not satisfy the 2nd condition of exactness.

We must apply the integrating factor method for a L1_ODE_VC.

 , divide by x to obtain the form:




From our solution of a general non-homogeneous L1_ODE_VC p.8-1



From p.8-2 Eq. (4)


Use the product rule of integration  


In our example   so,
