Homework Help: Separable Differential Equation

  1. Feb 21, 2006 #1
    Hello,
    Yes, this is for a class - but it is simply a high school homework assignment.
    I am solving for v. (This is only part of the homework problem, BTW).

    My question is particularly concerned with the last two lines. On the final line, is the [tex]-64/5[/tex] necessary?

    Thanks,
    Mitchell

    of course. you can verify that otherwise, the original differential equation is not satisfied.

    Thanks man. I guess I just wasn't thinking.

    BTW, I am very impressed by these forums. It is a great resource and there are many interesting things to read.

    Thanks,
    Mitchell

    It's great. There are so many knowledgable people around. I sometimes feel like I'm learning more here than I do at school for 3000$ a year. :grumpy:
