### Why are exact differential equations called exact?

Higher-order equations are also called exact **if they are the result of differentiating a lower-order equation**. … If the equation is not exact, there may be a function z(x), also called an integrating factor, such that when the equation is multiplied by the function z it becomes exact.

### What is Legendre differential equation?

Since the Legendre differential equation is **a second-order ordinary differential equation**, it has two linearly independent solutions. A solution which is regular at finite points is called a Legendre function of the first kind, while a solution which is singular at is called a Legendre function of the second kind.

### How do you solve differential equations?

**Here is a step-by-step method for solving them:**

- Substitute y = uv, and. …
- Factor the parts involving v.
- Put the v term equal to zero (this gives a differential equation in u and x which can be solved in the next step)
- Solve using separation of variables to find u.
- Substitute u back into the equation we got at step 2.

### Are all separable differential equations exact?

A first-order differential equation is exact if it has a conserved quantity. For example, **separable equations are always exact**, since by definition they are of the form: M(y)y + N(t)=0, … so ϕ(t, y) = A(y) + B(t) is a conserved quantity.

### Why do we need separable differential equations?

“Separation of variables” allows us to rewrite differential equations so **we obtain an equality between two integrals we can evaluate**. Separable equations are the class of differential equations that can be solved using this method.

### What is a solution to a partial differential equation?

A solution (or a particular solution) to a partial differential equation is a function that solves the equation or, in other words, **turns it into an identity when substituted into the equation**. A solution is called general if it contains all particular solutions of the equation concerned.

### How difficult is partial differential equations?

In general, partial differential equations **are difficult to solve**, but techniques have been developed for simpler classes of equations called linear, and for classes known loosely as “almost” linear, in which all derivatives of an order higher than one occur to the first power and their coefficients involve only the …

### Do all differential equations have analytic solutions?

Yes, it can be shown that **differential equations do not have analytic solutions**, using differential galois theory.

### What is homogeneous function in differential equations?

A differential equation of the form **f(x,y)dy = g(x,y)dx** is said to be homogeneous differential equation if the degree of f(x,y) and g(x, y) is same. A function of form F(x,y) which can be written in the form k^{n} F(x,y) is said to be a homogeneous function of degree n, for k≠0.

### What is the necessary and sufficient condition for the Pfaffian differential equation?

Theorem A necessary and sufficient condition that the Pfaffian differential equation X · r = 0 should be integrable is that **X · rot X = 0**.

### What is the order of a partial differential equation?

A differential equation involving partial derivatives of a dependent variable(one or more) with more than one independent variable is called a partial differential equation, hereafter denoted as PDE. Order of a PDE: **The order of the highest derivative term in the equation** is called the order of the PDE.

### What is the general solution of a differential equation?

A solution of a differential equation is an expression for the dependent variable in terms of the independent one(s) which satisfies the relation. The general solution includes **all possible solutions** and typically includes arbitrary constants (in the case of an ODE) or arbitrary functions (in the case of a PDE.)

### Are all first-order differential equations separable?

A first-order differential equation is said to be **separable** if, after solving it for the derivative, dy dx = F(x, y) , the right-hand side can then be factored as “a formula of just x ” times “a formula of just y ”, F(x, y) = f (x)g(y) .

### How can you tell the difference between a linear and separable differential equation?

Linear: No products or powers of things containing y. For instance y′2 is right out. Separable: The equation can be put in the form dy(expression containing ys, but no xs, in some combination you can integrate)**=dx**(expression containing xs, but no ys, in some combination you can integrate).

### Why is differential equations so hard?

differential equations in general **are extremely difficult to solve**. thats why first courses focus on the only easy cases, exact equations, especially first order, and linear constant coefficient case. the constant coefficient case is the easiest becaUSE THERE THEY BEhave almost exactly like algebraic equations.

### How do you solve isobaric differential equations?

An isobaric function F(x, y) satisfies the following equality: F(ax, a^{r}y) = a^{r}^{–}^{1}F(x, y), and it can be shown that the isobaric differential equation dy/dx = F(x, y), i.e. a DE of this form with F(x, y) being isobaric, becomes separable when using the **y = vx ^{r} substitution**.

### What is taught in differential equations?

A differential equation is an equation that **involves the derivatives of a function as well as the function itself**. … An equality involving a function and its derivatives.
