How to write Ordinary Differential Equation
How does one write a first order differential
equation in the form of
Example
is rewritten as
In this case

Example
The concentration of salt, in a home made
soap maker is given as a function of time by

At the initial time, t 0, the salt
concentration in the tank is 50g/L. Using
Eulers method and a step size of h 1.5 min,
what is the salt concentration after 3 minutes.

7
Solution

Step 1

is the approximate concentration of salt at

8
Solution Cont

Step 2
is the approximate concentration of salt at
9
Solution Cont
The exact solution of the ordinary differential
equation is given by

The solution to this nonlinear equation at t3
minutes is

Errors in Eulers Method
It can be seen that Eulers method has large
errors. This can be illustrated using Taylor
series.
As you can see the first two terms of the Taylor
series
are the Eulers method.
The true error in the approximation is given by
