help find the general solution of the following first order differential equation.

t*(dy/dt) = (-y/t) + ((exp(1/t)/t^3)

could you show steps in working to sol.

  • maths - ,

    I like x instead of t. You have

    xy' = -y/x + e^(1/x) / x^3

    Change to the form

    y' + yP(x) = Q(x)

    y' + y*1/x2 = e1/x/x4

    Now find the integrating factor

    IF = exp(Int(P(x)) = exp(Int(1/x2)) = e-1/x

    Now, y = 1/e-1/x Int(Q(x)*IF)
    = e1/x Int(e1/x/x4 * e-1/x dx)
    = e1/x*(-1/3x3 + C)

    y = Ce1/x - e1/x/3x3
