# Determine the order and degree of the following differential equation: dydxdydxyxd2ydx2+5dydx+y=x3 - Mathematics and Statistics

Sum

Determine the order and degree of the following differential equation:

("d"^2"y")/"dx"^2 + 5 "dy"/"dx" + "y" = "x"^3

#### Solution

The given D.E. is

("d"^2"y")/"dx"^2 + 5 "dy"/"dx" + "y" = "x"^3

This D.E. has highest order derivative ("d"^2"y")/"dx"^2 with power 1.

∴ the given D.E. is of order 2 and degree 1.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
