## MIT 1803 lecture 3

Watched MIT Maths lecture 3 on solving first order linear ODEs (steady state and transient solutions) with Arthur Mattuck. The lecture was good, and showed me what I hadn’t seen before, the general method of solving a first order ODE. The process is as follows

- Refactor given equation into which is known as
*standard linear form* - Find the
*integrating factor*such that the left hand side can be expressed as which implies that - Multiply the original equation (1) through by yielding which can also be written as
- Integrate both sides and divide by to yield a solution for thus

He worked two examples which I tried to work first. I’ve relearned
