Solve the differential equation $ y.e^{\large\frac{x}{y}} dx=(x.e^{\large\frac{x}{y}}+y^2)dy ; y \neq 0$

1 Answer

  • A differential equation of the form $\large\frac{dy}{dx }$$= F(x,y)$ is said to be homogenous if $F(x,y)$ is a homogenous function of degree zero.
  • To solve this type of equations substitute $y = vx$ and $\large\frac{dy}{dx }$$= v + x\large\frac{dv}{dx}$
Step 1:
This can be written as
$\large\frac{dx}{dy}=\frac{xe^{\Large x/y}+y^2}{ye^{\Large x/y}}$
Step 2:
Clearly this is a homogeneous differential equation .
Hence put $x=vy$
$\therefore v+y\large\frac{dv}{dy}=\frac{vye^v+y^2}{ye^v}$
$\Rightarrow \large\frac{ ve^v+y}{e^v}$
$\Rightarrow y\large\frac{dv}{dy}=\frac{ve^v+y}{e^v}$$-v$
Step 3:
Now separating the variables we get,
On integrating we get
$\int e^vdv=\int dy$
(i.e) $e^v=y+c$
Substituting for $v=\large\frac{x}{y}$ we get,
This is the required solution.
