Practice problems for Exam #2

1.   Using the method of undetermined coefficients, find the solution of the following initial value problem:

 y' ' - y' + 2 y = e2x - x2  + sin (x) y(0) = 1,  y'(0) = -2.

2.   Using the method of undetermined coefficients, find the general solution of the following ODE:
y' ' - 4 y' + 4 y = e2x + 5 x2 .

3.   Using the method of undetermined coefficients, find the solution of the following initial value problem:

 x2 y''  + 5 x y' + 29 y = 2 x2 + x y(1) = -2,  y'(1) = 1.

4.
(a)   Use the Abel's formula to find a second linearly independent solution of the following differential equation with the given solution:
 x2 (ln(x) - 1) y''  - x y' +  y = 0 y1(x) = x.

(b)   Find the general solution of the following equation:  x2 (ln(x) - 1) y''  - x y' +  y = x. Use the variation of parameters formula.

5.  Using the elimination method to find the general solution of the system of differential equations:
 x ' = x + 2y + 2 y ' = -2x + 3y - e2t .

6.   Find the general solution of the system of differential equations by the matrix method:
