A differential equation involves derivatives, which represent rates of change, while a regular equation involves only variables and constants.
Solving an equation using differential methods allows for a more accurate and precise solution, as it takes into account the rate of change of the variables involved.
Yes, differential equations are used to model and solve a wide range of real-world problems, such as population growth, motion, and heat transfer.
Yes, there are several methods for solving differential equations, including separation of variables, substitution, and using specific formulas for different types of equations.
While a strong foundation in mathematics is helpful, a basic understanding of algebra and calculus is usually sufficient to understand and solve differential equations.
