Homework Help: Exact equation?

  1. Jan 30, 2005 #1
    Tough differential equation


    I'm having real trouble with this differential equation. I don't want you to solve it for me. Just give me a hint what I should do.


    Obviously it is not exact. But I'm trying to find an integrating factor..
    May be I should use another technique.

    It's a tough one isn't it?

    I think it has no simple solution. Maple gave up after a while...

    I don't understand your question. I've been trying all techniques I learned (homogeneous, isobaric equation, exact equations, integrating factor,...). But I can't solve it.
