How much of a difference is there in between partial and regular differential equations. I took differentials but not the partial and I was wondering how much this restricts understanding in physics. Our physics class doesn't solve the differential equations (though some I can). Does normal first order and higher order techniques work. (cauchy euler, substitution, integrating factor)...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
