Determine if the ODE is exact. If it is exact, solve it a) (2xy - y^2) + (2xy - x^2)y^' = 0 3x^2...


Determine if the ODE is exact. If it is exact, solve it.

a) {eq}(2xy - y^2) + (2xy - x^2){y}' = 0 {/eq}

b) {eq}(3x^2 - 2xy + 2)dx + (6y^2 - x^2 + 3)dy = 0 {/eq}

c) {eq}(e^xsiny - 2y sinx) + (e^xcosy + 2cosx){y}' = 0 {/eq}

d) {eq}(t \ln y + ty) + (y \ln t + ty)\frac{dy}{dt} = 0, t > 0, y > 0{/eq}

Exact differential equation:

A differential equation of the form {eq}M(x,y)dx + N(x,y)dy=0 {/eq} is said to be exact if {eq}\frac{\partial M}{\partial y}=\frac{\partial N}{\partial x}. {/eq}

The solution of the exact differential equation is given by {eq}\int M(x,y)dx +\int N_{y} dy=0 {/eq}

where {eq}N_y {/eq} indicates, those terms in {eq}N(x,y) {/eq} which are free from {eq}x {/eq}
