(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Solve the following equation for x(y). (use no differential functions)

x(0)' and x(0) are known.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm a bit unsure as to what to do next but I can easily make a messy formula up to approximate the result.

k1 and k2 are a constant value.

The bigger E is, the bigger the error. For an infinite recursive use of this formula with an infinitesimal E the right result would be achieved. I don't know what it converges to though.

Any help for this problem or/and similar problems would be great. Thank you.
