1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data So I'm in pchem right now and I haven't taken dif eq (it's not required, but I wish I had taken it now!) I am asked to solve this differential equation: y''+y'-2y=0 2. Relevant equations I know for a second order differential equation I can solve for the roots first. If there is one root then the solution will take the form y=c1erx+c2xerx If there are two distinct roots I will get something like: y=c1er1x+c2er2x 3. The attempt at a solution I tried to find the roots r2+r-2=0 r= -2 and r=1 So I get: y=c1e-2x+c2ex I am pretty sure this is correct (I checked to see if I got zero if I did y''+y'-2y and I did), but is there a way to find c1 and c2?
