Unit I: First Order Differential Equations

Basic DE's and Separable Equations

« Previous | Next »

Session Overview

In this session we will introduce our most important differential equation and its solution: y’ = ky. This DE models exponential growth or decay.

We will also learn how to solve what are called separable equations. Finally, we will see first-order linear models of several physical processes.
