# Determine the order and degree of following differential equation $\bigg(\large \frac{ds}{dt} \bigg)^4 +$$3s\bigg(\large \frac{d^2s}{dt^2} \bigg)$$= 0$

Toolbox:
• The highest order derivative present in the differential equation determines its order.The highest power raise to the derivative determines its degree.
Given equation is $\bigg(\large\frac{ds}{dt}\bigg)^4$$+3s\big(\large\frac{d^2s}{dt^2}\big)$$=0$
In this equation the highest order is two and degree to which it is raised is 1
Hence the order is two and degree is one.
