Find the differential equation has the general solution of :
y = C1e^(t/2) + C2e^2t
Solution:
The general solution has the form y = C1e^r1t + C2e^r2t
we have r1 = 1/2. r2 = 2
(r + 1/2)(r+2) = 0
r^2 + 5/2r + 1 = 0
The differential equation has the from of y'' + p(t)y' +q(t)y = g(t)
Therefore,
the differential equation which has the general solution of has the general solution of y = C1e^(t/2) + C2e^2t is:
Y'' + 5/2Y' + Y = 0
