    Enzyme kinetics question

    Thanks very much for the information. I completely understand about the download link, and i'v now attached a PDF file of the presentation. I think the answer to part a may well be on the second page. However unfortunately i'm still at a dead end on (b). Would it require plotting a graph? If so...

    Differential equation problem

    Homework Statement x^2\frac{dy}{dx}=\frac{2sqrt(y)}{x^4} Where y(1)=3 Homework Equations The Attempt at a Solution \int \frac{dy}{2sqrt(y)}=\int \frac{dx}{x^4} 4sqrt(y)=\frac{-1}{3x^3}+c c=4sqrt(3)+\frac{1}{3} So i end up with...
