  • A function is said to be homogenous function in degree n if $F(kx,ky) = k^nF(x,y)$ for any non zero constant $k.$
  • To solve these type of homogenous functions we make the substitution $y = vx$ hence $\large\frac{dy}{dx}$$ = v+x\large\frac{dv}{dx}$
Step 1:
This can be written as
Step 2:
Clearly this is a homogenous differential equation it can solved as follows :
Put $y=vx$
On differentiating with respect to $x$ we get
Substituting for $y$ and $\large\frac{dy}{dx}$ in equ (1) we get,
Step 3:
Now separating the variables we get,
Integrating on both sides we get,
$\int \large\frac{dv}{\sqrt{1+v^2}}=\int\frac{dx}{x}$
Consider $\int \large\frac{dv}{\sqrt{1+v^2}}$
This is of the form
$\int \large\frac{dx}{\sqrt{x+a^2}}$$=\log \mid x+\sqrt{x^2+a^2}\mid +c$
$\therefore \log \mid v+\sqrt{1+v^2}=\log x+\log c$
$\Rightarrow \log\mid v+\sqrt{1+v^2}\mid=\log cx$
$ \log\mid v+\sqrt{1+v^2}\mid= cx$
Step 4:
Substituting for $v$ we get,
$\Rightarrow y+x^2+y^2=cx^2$
(i.e)$ y^2+y=x^2(c-1)$
Put $c-1=k$
This is the required solution.
