d^2y/dx^2=1-dy/dx
am i allowed to rearrange this to d^2y/dx^2-dy/dx=1 and say this is a linear ODE

  • math - ,

    Using the notation
    y"=d²y/dx², and
    y'=dy/dx,
    you can write
    y"=1-y'
    as
    y"+y'=1, or
    y"+y'-1=0

    It is a linear ODE because the terms of the dependent variable, y, y', y", ... are linear in y, i.e. no terms contains (y")², or y³, etc.
