3.3 Separable Differential Equations



The importance of the method of separation of variables was shown in the introductory section. In the present section, separable differential equations and their solutions are discussed in greater detail.

By the end of your studying, you should know:


Solve the (separable) differential equation

Solve the (separable) differential equation

Solve the following differential equation:

Sketch the family of solution curves.
