Taking an intro ODE class. Class just started and we are using a book, that to me, feels like en encrypted alien language. It is hard to read, but to much words and images, not enough layout. I'm more into theorem/proof style books. The book is too chatty. Well anyways.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

It is giving problems trying to do my hw sets. For example.

Show that the implicit solution of 2x sin2 ydxx2 + 10 cos ydy = 0 is given by ln x2 + 10+csc y = c:

This is not explained clearly in the book. ( the directions).

Does this mean to just take the implicit derivative of ln x2 + 10+csc y = c and put into the form that contains the DE.

or does this mean to integrate 2x sin2 ydxx2 + 10 cos ydy = 0.

I am leaning on the implicit differentiation.

I already worked out both ways. I am definitely going to get the library and get a book.
