Homework Help: Separable D.E., Nonlinear in terms of y(x) after integration

  1. Dec 15, 2009 #1
    So, this is where I am stuck:

    [tex]ln\left(y\right)+y^{2} = \sin{x}+c_{0}[/tex]

    I am confrused... :blushing:

    Do you think that

    [tex]y(x) =\pm\sqrt{2LambertW(2exp(2sin(x)+C)}/2[/tex]

    is better?

    It's easier to express <x> in terms of <y>, wouldn't you say ?

    EtherealMonkey, are you required to solve for y? That isn't always necessary or possible.

    hmm, but is it possible to make an explicit form in terms of x?
