### Modified Euler method

Use modified Euler method with (h=0.1) to solve the following differential equation:

d2y/dx2=2+y/x , Where y(1)=1 for x=1 to 1.4

### Re: Modified Euler method

Hi ammar;

The Euler method ( modified or not ) is usually for a first order ODE.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

### Re: Modified Euler method

Yes,but we can solve it by  change the second derivative to first derivative but how to change this equation ?

### Re: Modified Euler method

Yes, you can change any second order de into 2 first order or coupled ones.

I have to get offline for a bit, in the meantime watch this video. When I get back if it still is a problem then we will work on it.

Hi;

Is the first equation, the second is

You left out an initial condition in your original problem.

### Re: Modified Euler method

There should be a y'(x) too. But just to get the 2 equations you do not need it.

∫d2y/dx2=∫(2+y/x)

dy/dx=2x+y*ln(x) , is this correct ?

### Re: Modified Euler method

But I think it's would be dy/dx=2x+y*ln(x)+constant

and if we have a boundary condition (dy/dx) I will find the constant

but in the question the boundary is  y(1)=1, that's not work

That is why I asked you what the initial conditions were. You need 2, y(1) = 1 and y'(x) = something.
