In this video we are going to take a look at Separable Differential Equations. We are going to learn how to identify and solve separable first-order differential equations. Speaking informally, we have a differential equation (dy)/(dx)=f(x,y) and we are going to separate variables everything involving y will be on one side and everything involving x on the other side. We will also see what sort of issues can arise, examine those issues, and discuss some ways to deal with them. Since many of these issues involve graphing, we will also draw a bunch of pictures.
Often in this
technique, logarithms appear be careful in working with these!
Often our constant
of integration ends up appearing in an exponent be careful in
working with this, too!
You will see much
more on this topic if you take a course in differential equations!
