# Find the differential equation of all non vertical lines in a plane.

$\begin{array}{1 1}(A)\;\large\frac{d^2y}{dx^2}=\frac{dy}{dx} \\(B)\;\large\frac{d^2y}{dx^2}-y=0 \\(C)\;\large\frac{d^2y}{dx^2}=0 \\ (D)\;\large\frac{d^2y}{dx^2}-\frac{dy}{dx}-y=0\end{array}$

Toolbox:
• A differential equation is a linear differential equation if it is expressible in the form : $P_0 \Large\frac{d^ny}{dx^n}$$+P_1 \Large\frac{d^{n-1}y}{dx^{n-1}}$$+P_2\Large \frac{d^{n-2}y}{dx^{n-2}}$$+...P_n y=Q Where P_0,P_1....P_n and Q are constants or function independent of variable x To find the differential equation of all non-vertical lines in a plane Clearly the equation of non vertical line in a plane is y=mx+c differentiating with respect to x on both sides \large\frac{dy}{dx}$$=m$
again differentiating with respect to x on both sides
$\large\frac{d^2y}{dx^2}$$=0 Hence the differential equation is \large\frac{d^2y}{dx^2}$$=0$
