dy/dt = -ty^2 y(0) = 1(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What can you say about the solution over the interval 0<=t <=2?

The text says that the solution is decreasing and never zero because y(t) = 0 for all t is an equilibrium solution.

I can see why the solution can never cross the x-axis, but why can't the solution become zero?
