help with equilibrium solution please?

Consider the following equation:
x¨ + x˙ + x = 1.
Determine the equilibrium solution and investigate its stability.

not too sure on this stuff. any help is appreciated.

Re: help with equilibrium solution please?

You need the solution to the DE and from that you can determine stability or how well the equation deals with small changes in inputs.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
A number by itself is useful, but it is far more useful to know how accurate or certain that number is.
