Separation of Variables
Technique used to solve differential equations that involves isolating variables to their own sides of the equation. For example, only having x on one side of the equation and y on the other.
Solve for the following for y:
Solve the following:
The solution is:
A cylindrical pool drains at a constant rate of dV/dt = 600 cm3/sec. Solve for how fast the height of the pool will change (dh/dt) if the pool has a radius of 500 cm. (V = pi*r 2*h)
dh/dt = 0.00076 cm/sec
Related Rate Problems
These problems involve finding the rate of change of a quantity by relating that rate to other known rates. A common related rate problem is the draining tank problem.
Distance Formula
The distance formula is:
The equation for a line is y = x3 + 3 and the x-coordinate is increasing at a rate of 1 unit/sec. When the point is (1,4), find the rate that the points distance from the origin is changing.
The rate (in units/sec) is:
Differential Equation
Differential equations relate a function to its derivative. In other words, it relates a function (and variables) to a rate of change.
Determine if the following is a differential equation.
No, this is not a differential equation. A differential equation must relate a variable to a rate of change.
Determine if the following is a differential equation.
Yes, this is a differential equation because it relates a variable and its rate of change.
