1 Exact Equations and Integrating Factors Def Given Mdx+Ndy = 0 with @M@y 6= @N@x , i.e. not exact. If (x;y)M(x;y)dx+ (x;y)N(x;y)dy = 0 is exact, i.e. @ @y( M) = @ @x( N) then (x;y) is called an integrating factor. In example with equation (A), 1t is an integrating factor, in (B) 1ty is an integrating factor. How do we nd integrating factors? What are the conditions on (x;y) so as to make (x;y) an integrating factor? ANS @( M) @y = @( N) @x ; @M @y +M @ @y = @N @x +N @ @x or M @ @y N @ @x + @M @y @N @x = 0 a PDE Is there an integrating factor (x), function of x only? Nd dx + @M @y @N @x = 0 or d = 1 N @M @y @N @x dx ANS YES if ::: is a function of x only. 1 Is there an integrating factor (y), function of y only? Md dy + @M @y @N @x = 0 or d = 1 M @N @x @M @y dy ANS YES if ::: is a function of y only. ) If @M@y 6= @N@x see if (a) 1N @M @y @N @x is a function of x only. YES ) = (x) only. Solve a separable DE for (x). see if (b) 1M @N @x @M @y is a function of y only. YES ) = (y) only. Solve a separable DE for (y). Example dy dx = x2 +y2 +x xy ; y(2) = 1: Find y(1): (x2 +y2 +x)dx+xydy = 0 @M @y = 2y; @N @x = y not exact 1 M @N @x @M @y = 1x2 +y2 +x(y 2y) not a function of y 1 N @M @y @N @x = 1xy(2y y) = 1x Good! 2 d = 1 N @M @y @N @x dx d = 1 xdx)lnj j= lnjxj+ ln ~C ) = Cx is an integrating factor Now DE with = x )(x3 +xy2 +x2)dx+x2ydy = 0 is supposed to be exact CHECK: @M @y = 2xy = @N @x EXACT f(x;y) = x 4 4 + x2y2 2 + x3 3 + (y) f(x;y) = x 2y2 2 + (x) )f(x;y) = x 4 4 + x3 3 + x2y2 2 )d x4 4 + x3 3 + x2y2 2 = 0 ) x 4 4 + x3 3 + x2y2 2 = C 3x4 + 4x3 + 6x2y2 = C1 I.C.)3(2)4 + 4(2)3 + 6(2)2( 1)2 = 104 = C1 3x4 + 4x3 + 6x2y2 = 104 to nd y(1) solve for y y = r 104 x4 4x3 6x2 note the choice of in p y(1) = r104 3 4 6 = 4:02 3

"StudyBlue is great for studying. I love the study guides, flashcards and quizzes. So extremely helpful for all of my classes!"

Alice , Arizona State University"I'm a student using StudyBlue, and I can 100% say that it helps me so much. Study materials for almost every subject in school are available in StudyBlue. It is so helpful for my education!"

Tim , University of Florida"StudyBlue provides way more features than other studying apps, and thus allows me to learn very quickly! I actually feel much more comfortable taking my exams after I study with this app. It's amazing!"

Jennifer , Rutgers University"I love flashcards but carrying around physical flashcards is cumbersome and simply outdated. StudyBlue is exactly what I was looking for!"
