Simple differential equation question

  1. Apr 18, 2005 #1
    is there anyone who can help me.

    how do I solve the following differential equation:

    dP = P^2V
    dV

    im not sure what the intergral of 1/P^2 is


    is the answer P = Ce^(v^2) - Ce to the power of v squared ?
    thanx

    1/P2= P-2. Do you know the integral of that?

    "is the answer P = Ce^(v^2) - Ce to the power of v squared ?"

    No, it's not anything like that. For one thing, it does not involve any exponentials.
