Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am trying to solve a second order nonlinear eqn which is

y''+3y'=1/(y^5), y'(0)=0, using mathematica.

When I type

DSolve[y''[x]+3*y'[x]=(1/(y[x])^5) ,y'[0]==0,y[x],x]; I get "second-order nonlinear ordinary differential equation" as a result.

I don't understand what mistake I am making. I am not so much familiar to mathematica.

Could You help me to solve this eqn.

Thanks,
