Hello, I have recently started a little implicit differentiation and I have seen DEs before but I know that I still need to work on my differentiation and integration a little more before I am ready to tackle those. Anyway, I wish to ask, what distinguishes implicit differentiation from a differential equation? In implicit differentiation you are solving an equation with a derivative in it so does that make it a differential equation even if it is comparably easier to do?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
