conjecture
A guess
Linear Second order ordinary Differential equation
ay''+by'+cy = g(t)
ay''+by'+cy = 0
is a constant constant coefficent
a,b,c are real numbers not variables
The equation is called homogeneous when g(t)
If g(t) =0
The equation is called inhomogeneous when g(t)
if g(t) != 0
y'' + ry' = 0
u = y'
u' = y''
u' + ru = 0
y = ce
^{-rt}
y' = - re
^{-rt}
y'' = -r

How do we check
plug and check
