Problem 47E

Equilibrium solutions A differential equation of the form $$y^{\prime}(t)=F(y)$$ is said to be autonomous (the function F depends only on y). The constant function $$y=y_{0}$$ is an equilibrium solution of the equation provided $$F\left(y_{0}\right)=0$$ (because then $$y^{\prime}(t)=0$$, and the solution remains constant for all t). Note that equilibrium solutions correspond to horizontal line segments in the direction field. Note also that for autonomous equations, the direction field is independent of t. Consider the following equations.

a. Find all equilibrium solutions.

b. Sketch the direction field on either side of the equilibrium solutions for $$t \geq 0$$.

c. Sketch the solution curve that corresponds to the initial condition y(0) = 1.

$$y^{\prime}(t)=y(y-3)(y+2)$$

Problem 47E

Equilibrium solutions A differential equation of the form y′(t) = F(y) is said to be autonomous (the function F depends only on y). The constant function y = y0is an equilibrium solution of the equation provided  (because then y′(t)=0, and the solution remains constant for all t). Note that equilibrium solutions correspond to horizontal line segments in the direction field. Note also that for autonomous equations, the direction field is independent of t. Consider the following equations.

a. Find all equilibrium solutions.

b. Sketch the direction field on either side of the equilibrium solutions for t ≥ 0.

c. Sketch the solution curve that corresponds to the initial condition y(0) = 1.

y′(t) = y(y −3)(y + 2)

Solution

Step 1
