Homework Help: Find the unique solution to the initial value problem

  1. Jan 27, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    The unique solution to the initial value problem
    is http://webwork.usi.edu/webwork2_files/tmp/equations/ed/12ad7dca5df62ed3b18f5fbf8c6e871.png [Broken]
    Determine the constant 311d70fb1bd53d54f2558c65e359231.png and the function 0ea070d1587cc971d1f2a60b260d461.png

    2. Relevant equations

    Not sure for the second part.

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I got the constant y(0)= 1 and know that is correct. I can not figure out how to get g(t). I feel like you need more information on the original problem.

    Take the derivative of the solution and substitute into the diff. equation.
