I'm trying to plot the solution to an ODE (with given initial values) but there are some constants in it that I want to evaluate with sliders and I'm not sure what is the right syntax for this.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Code (Text):Manipulate[Plot[solution1[t], {t, 0, 10}, PlotRange -> {-Pi, Pi}],

{{a, 1, "Driving amplitude"}, 0, 10, Appearance -> "Labeled"},

{{g, 9.81, "Gravitational acceleration"}, 0, 10,

Appearance -> "Labeled"},

{{l, 1, "Length"}, 0, 10, Appearance -> "Labeled"},

{{\[Gamma], 1, "Driving frequency"}, 0, 10, Appearance -> "Labeled"}]

If I copy solution1 explicitly into plot it works, but if I refer to it by the variable name it doesn't. What's the correct syntax for this?
