hi Graeme92

You've been given enough information to substitute in and work out the constants, C and D.  So the 'solution' will be a formula for calculating h, given any value for x.

Thanks again Bob, but how do you solve for h?

hi Graeme92

Actually all integration is like question 2!

eg.



Splitting the derivative like this is used a lot in differential equations.





You only need to introduce a constant of integration on one side as a constant on each side could be replaced by just one.

Thank you for this, Bob. Can you give me a reference for the second question, and I am not sure about "F".

hi Graeme92

Welcome to the forum.

If N is a number



Then you can substitute in the given values to determine C and D.

The second question starts the same but you might be wondering what to do with



where F is the function after the first integration.

You can think of this as



Post again if you need more detail.

2nd order differential equation

Find the analytic solution for this equation in terms of two constants by integrating twice.

d/dx(h * dh/dx) = 0

h(0) = 40 ; h(10000) = 40

Find the analytic solution for this equation in terms of two constants by integrating twice.

dh/dx = -R/K = 2 x 10-5

h(0) = 1000 ; h(10000) = 1000
