Hello everyone I am hoping to get a little with a system.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Here is the the system:

dx = y

dt

dy = -y^2 - sin(x)

dt

I need to find all the equilibira and determine whether they are sinks, sources, etc...

I need to sketch the x and y nullclines.

Indicate the direction of the solution curve in any regions bounded by the nullcines.

Lastly, sketch the entire phase plane.

Thank you for the help in advance!
