(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Convert to standard form ODE system y0 = f(t, y):

t^2y'' + sin(y') + 2y − 1 = 0

the goal is to reduce the equation above to be a first order ode.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried to introduced a new variable but the sin(y') seems tricky.
