# Find the general solution $\large\frac{dy}{dx} $$=\sqrt {4-y^2} \; (-2\lt y \lt 2) Can you answer this question? ## 1 Answer 0 votes Toolbox: • \int\large\frac{1}{\sqrt{ a^2 - x^2}}$$ =\sin^{-1} (\large\frac{x}{a})$
Step 1:
Given: $\large\frac{dy}{dx }$$= \sqrt{ 4 - y^2} seperating the variables we get, \large\frac{dy}{\sqrt{ 4-y^2}}$$= dx$
Step 2:
Integrating on both sides we get,
using the hint from the tool box
$\sin^{-1}(\large\frac{y}{2 }$$)= x + C \large\frac{y}{2 }$$= \sin(x+C)$
$y = 2\sin(x + C)$
This is the required general solution.
