# Ch 12: Differential Equations & Applications

Let us help you boost your understanding of differential calculus and its applications and equations with this chapter. Use these lessons and videos to build confidence in the subject before you take a placement exam or complete a homework assignment.

## Differential Equations & Applications - Chapter Summary

Our instructors will define differential calculus and explain its varied applications. The concepts of separation of variables and how to calculate exponential growth are discussed. You will also learn how to solve seemingly complicated problems involving the distance between two moving points by using differentiation.

As you move through the lessons, several methods you can use to solve systems of linear differential equations are also covered. This chapter will teach you to:

• Describe how differential equations describe what is happening in the world around you
• Use the separation of variables technique to solve equations
• Understand how differential equations predict exponential growth
• Solve the draining tank problem
• Define the Newton-Raphson method
• Outline several ways to solve linear differential equations

Our instructors are available to help you as you move through the lessons. Simply contact one of them if you need additional help. You can access these study materials at any time, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Use the quizzes and tests to measure how well you've retained the information that you've learned.
