I am trying to solve the following equation using the variation of parameters method(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

d^{2}x/dt^{2}-(q^{2}B_{z}^{2}/m^{2})x=qE_{x}/m

I have put x_{1}=cos(t) and x_{2}=sin(t) in to the Wronskian method. Can someone tell me if these are the correct functions to use, or should I be using exponential functions.

Any help would be great...
