## Problem 2.2[edit | edit source]

### Given[edit | edit source]

Given is an Initial Value Problem (IVP) to solve a second-order Ordinary Differential Equation (ODE) by finding a particular solution to the equation and its subsequent plot.

Initial Values:

Differential Equation:

Assume that no excitation exists, i.e.

Therefore the ODE to be solved becomes:

### Solution[edit | edit source]

With the given conditions, a homogenous linear second order ODE with constant coefficients is given to solve. In order to solve this ODE, a basis of solutions must be formed that meet the given conditions. Our goal is to find a solution to that will fit to the a general solution in the form of:

To do this, a quadratic equation in the form of the following is used to determine the method of how the basis of solutions will be formed.

In order to do find the general solution, and ultimately the particular solution for this IVP, we will need to solve for λ using the characteristic equation above. Given that this is a quadratic equation, we can solve for λ by finding the roots of the equation. We know the variables a and b from our given ODE.

Let:

**a = -10**
**b = 25**

Plugging this into the characteristic equation, we yield the following:

Now, instead of solving directly for λ, we can determine exactly how many and what kind of roots the equation will have based on the following cases given the value of the discriminant:

Case 1 | Case 2 | Case 3 |
---|---|---|

Discriminant > 0 | Discriminant = 0 | Discriminant < 0 |

Two Real Roots | One Real Root | Two Complex Roots |

The discriminant is given by the following equation:

If we evaluate the discriminant using the values of a and b from above, we can evaluate the discriminant to be:

Therefore, we are in Case 2, where the value of our roots will be one real double root. Therefore, we can determine the value of λ by the following equation and by substituting the values into the equation subsequently.

From this, we can use the value of λ to form one equation of the basis as follows:

In order to form a basis, a second solution is needed. This is done by performing a reduction of order, yielding a first order differential equation. This process will produce the following general solution*:

Substituting the value for λ that was found:

In order to solve for the variables c_{1} and c_{2}, we will use the initial conditions that were given in the problem statement. Therefore, we have two unknowns. We can solve for both of these variables by writing two equations, since one of the initial values was given as a value for the first derivative of the solution at a given point. The derivative of the general solution obtained (shown directly above) is obtained:

We can determine the value of c_{2} in terms of c_{1} by simply substituting in the known initial values as follows:

The second equation to solve for the unknown variable c_{1} can be determined by simply using the general solution equation and using the other initial value in the problem statement.

Therefore, we now know both of the unknown variables. Therefore the particular solution of the given ODE is:

It's subsequent plot is therefore:
