    Have you done any calculations at all yet as an attempt? What do you think you should do? :smile:

    Hint: Think about what you know about partial derivatives, and also how you could get those equations into the forms required to help obtain the answers. :wink:

    well i initially thought about integration...but really i have no clue about it since i haven't be teached yet how to solve nonlinear differential equations(at least that's what I think this equation is,correct me if i'm wrong)

    No, that is not a non-linear partial differential equation. Why would you think it is non-linear?

    ok so it's a linear partial differential equation...i'll try some ways out and if I still can't solve it i'll let you know:)
