I just picked up a copy of Mathematica through Penn State, and I'm trying to figure out how to plot a direction field of a differential equation. For example, I have the differential equation [tex]dv/dt = 32  8v[/tex]
I've found this page on Wolfram's site that shows you how to do it, but in the line
Also, there's another page on Wolfram's site that displays the following as the format for the PlotVectorField function:

The following code will do what you want:
