- The order of the differential equation is the order of the derivative of the highest order occurring in the differential equation.
- The degree of a differential equation is the degree of the highest order differential coefficient appearing in it subject to the condition that it can be expressed as a polynomial equation in derivatives.
- A solution in which the number of constants is equal to the order of the equation is called the general solution of a differential equation.
- Particular solutions are derived from the general solution by assigning different values to the constants of general solution.
- An ordinary differential equation (ODE) of order n is an equation of the formF(x, y, y',â€¦.., y
^{(n)}) = 0, where y is a function of x and y' denotes the first derivative of y with respect to x. - An ODE of order n is said to be linear if it is of the form an(x)y
^{(n)}+ a^{n-1}(x) y^{(n-1)}+ â€¦. + a_{1}(x) y' + a_{0}(x) y = Q(x) - If both m
_{1}and m_{2}are constants, the expressions (D â€“ m_{1}) (D â€“ m_{2}) y and (Dâ€“ m_{2}) (D â€“ m_{1}) y are equivalent i.e. the expression is independent of the order of operational factors. - A differential equation of the form dy/ dx = f (ax+by+c) is solved by writing ax + by + c = t.
- A differential equation, M dx + N dy = 0, is homogeneous if replacement of x and y by Î»x and Î»y results in the original function multiplied by some power of Î», where the power of Î» is called the degree of the original function.
- Homogeneous differential equations are solved by putting y = vx.
- Linear equation are of the form of dy/dx + Py = Q, where P and Q are functions of x alone, or constants.
- Linear equations are solved by substituting y =uv, where u and v are functions of x.
- The general method for finding the particular integral of any function is 1/ (D-Î±)x = e
^{Î±x}âˆ«Xe^{-}^{Î±x}dx

**Various methods of finding the particular integrals:**

1. When X = e^{ax} in f(D) y = X, where a is a constant

Then 1/f(D) e^{ax }= 1/f(a) e^{ax} , if f(a) â‰ 0 and

1/f(D) e^{ax} = x^{r}/f^{r}(a) e^{ax} , if f(a) = 0, where f(D) = (D-a)^{r}f(D)

2. To find P.I. when X = cos ax or sin ax

f (D) y = X

If f (â€“ a^{2}) â‰ 0 then 1/f(D^{2}) sin ax = 1/f(-a^{2}) sin ax

If f (â€“ a^{2}) = 0 then (D^{2} + a^{2}) is at least one factor of f (D^{2})

3. To find the P.I.when X = xm where m âˆˆ N

f (D) y = xm

y = 1/ f(D) xm

4. To find the value of 1/f(D) e^{ax} V where â€˜aâ€™ is a constant and V is a function of x

1/f (D) .e^{ax} V = e^{ax}.1/f (D+a). V

5. To find 1/f (D). xV where V is a function of x

1/f (D).xV = [x- 1/f(D). f'(D)] 1/f(D) V

**Some Results on Tangents and Normals:**

1. The equation of the tangent at P(x, y) to the curve y= f(x) is Y â€“ y = dy/dx .(X-x)

2. The equation of the normal at point P(x, y) to the curve y = f(x) isY â€“ y = [-1/ (dy/dx) ].(X â€“ x )

3. The length of the tangent = CP =y âˆš[1+(dx/dy)^{2}]

4. The length of the normal = PD = y âˆš[1+(dy/dx)^{2}]

5. The length of the Cartesian sub tangent = CA = y dy/dx

6. The length of the Cartesian subnormal = AD = y dy/dx

7. The initial ordinate of the tangent = OB = y â€“ x.dy/dx
