# Find the particular solution of the following differential equation: dydxyx2xdydx-3ycotx=sin2x, when yy(π2)=2 - Mathematics and Statistics

Sum

Find the particular solution of the following differential equation:

"dy"/"dx" - 3"y" cot "x" = sin "2x", when "y"(pi/2) = 2

#### Solution

"dy"/"dx" - 3"y" cot "x" = sin "2x"

∴ "dy"/"dx" - (3  "cot x")"y" = sin "2x"   ....(1)

This is the linear differential equation of the form

"dx"/"dy" + "Px" = "Q" where P = - 3 cot "x" and Q = sin 2x.

∴ I.F. = "e"^(int "P dy") = "e"^(int - 3 cot "x" "dx")

= "e"^(- 3 log sin "x") = "e"^(log (sin "x")^-3)

= (sin "x")^-3 = 1/(sin^3"x")

∴ the solution of (1) is given by

"x" * ("I.F.") = int "Q" * ("I.F.") "dy" + "c"

∴ "y" xx 1/(sin^3 "x") = int sin "2x" xx 1/(sin "3x") "dx" + "c"

∴ y cosec3 x = int 2 sin "x" cos "x" xx 1/sin^3"x" "dx" + "c"

∴ y cosec3 x = 2 int (cos "x")/(sin^2 "x") "dx" + "c"

Put sin x = t          ∴ cos x dx = dt

∴ y cosec3 x = 2int 1/"t"^2 "dt" + "c"

∴ y cosec3 x = 2int "t"^-2 "dt" + "c"

∴ y cosec3 x = 2["t"^-1/-1] + "c"

∴ y cosec3 x = (-2)/sin "x" + "c"

∴ y cosec3 x + 2 cosec x = c

This is the general solution.

Now, "y"(pi/2) = 2, i.e. y = 2, when x = pi/2

∴ 2 "cosec"^3 pi/2 + 2 "cosec" pi/2 = "c"

∴ 2(1)3 + 2(1) = c

∴ c = 4

∴ the particular solution is

y cosec3 x + 2 cosec x = 4

∴ y cosec2 x + 2 = 4 sin x
