Hello. I have simple DE(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

y' + p y^(1/2) = q

---------------

y'=dy/dt

p,q=constant

I am confused because I tried bernoulli's method to solve and I think I exploded the universe.

Basically, my initial condition of t=0,y=0 made infinity, not right. I'm not sure that method works when there is no y^(1) with q anyway.

Any other suggestions to solve?
