Hello. I have simple DE
y' + p y^(1/2) = q  y'=dy/dt p,q=constant I am confused because I tried bernoulli's method to solve and I think I exploded the universe. Basically, my initial condition of t=0,y=0 made infinity, not right. I'm not sure that method works when there is no y^(1) with q anyway. Any other suggestions to solve?

Haha, totally forgot about wolfram alpha. sooo good. Anyway the solution it gave me is way to complex for my college DEQ class. I should probably change my equation. Thanks anyways.
