find solution to differential equation given the initial conditions DQ/dt=Q/5
Q= 50 when t= 0

i don't understand this one because of the division sign.

  • calculus -

    dQ/Q = dt/5
    ln Q = t/5 + C
    Q = C' exp (t/5)
    C and C' are arbitiry constants that you can determine from the initial condition
    Q = 50 exp (t/5)
