Chapter 14

Decide whether or not the given integral converges. If the integral converges, compute its value. $$\int_{0}^{+\infty} x^{2} e^{-6 x} d x$$

Chapter 14

Find the general solution of each differential equation in Exercises \(1-10 .\) Where possible, solve for \(y\) as a function of \(x\). $$\frac{d y}{d x}=\frac{1}{(x+1) y^{2}}$$

Chapter 14

Linear Differential Equationsare based on first order linear differential equations with constant coefficients. These have the form $$ \frac{d y}{d t}+p y=f(t) \quad(p \text { constant }) $$ and the general solution is $$ y=e^{-p t} \int f(t) e^{p t} d t . \quad \text { (Check this by substituting!) } $$ Solve the linear differential equation $$ \frac{d y}{d t}+y=e^{-t} ; y=1 \text { when } t=0 . $$

Chapter 14

Market Saturation You have just introduced a new flat-screen monitor to the market. You predict that you will eventually sell 100,000 monitors and that your monthly rate of sales will be \(10 \%\) of the difference between the saturation value of 100,000 and the total number you have sold up to that point. Find a differential equation for your total sales (as a function of the month) and solve. (What are your total sales at the moment when you first introduce the monitor?)
