(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

x"=(-1/x^2) when x=c1>0 and x'=c2 at t=0 what relationship has to exist between c1 and c2 to give the problem a solution of k(t+B)^a.... then solve for k,a,B....

3. The attempt at a solution

x"+(1/x^2)=0, im sorry im just stuck, i think it goin to look somthin like (x+2)^2.... but this inverse square is confusing me... we normally do it like,

[tex]\lambda[/tex]"+a[tex]\lambda[/tex]=0, but im not sure, can anyone plz point me in the right direction.... but then wat does it mean by what relationship between c1and c2?
