1 Chem 302 - Math 252 Chapter 6 Differential Equations

2 Differential Equations Many problems in physical chemistry (eg. kinetics, dynamics, theoretical chemistry) require solution to a differential equation Many can not be solved analytically Deal only with first order ODE –Higher order equations can be reduced to a system of 1 st order DE

3 Differential Equations Simplest form Can integrate analytically or numerically (using techniques of Chapter 4)

4 Differential Equations General case Many simpler problems can be solved analytically Many involve e x However, in chemistry (physics & engineering) many problems have to be solved numerically (or approximately)

5 Picard Method Can not integrate exactly because integrand involves y Approximate iteratively by using approximations for y Continue to iterate until a desire level of accuracy is obtained in y Often gives a power series solution

6 Picard Method – Example Continue to iterate until a desire level of accuracy is obtained in y

7 Picard Method – Example 2

8 Euler Method Assume linear between 2 consecutive points Between initial point and 1 st (calculated) point User selects x Need to be careful - too big or too small can cause problems

9 Euler Method – Example

10 Taylor Method Based on Taylor expansion Use chain rule Euler method is Taylor method of order 1

11 Taylor Method – Example

12 Improved Euler (Heuns) Method Euler Method –Use constant derivative between points i & i+1 –calculated at x i Better to use average derivative across the interval y i+1 is not known Predict – Correct (can repeat)

13 Improved Euler Method – Example

14 Modified Euler Method –Use derivative halfway between points i & i+1

15 Modified Euler Method – Example

16 Runge-Kutta Methods Improved and Modified Euler Methods are special cases –2 nd order Runge-Kutta 4 th order Runge-Kutta –Runge –Kutta –Runge-Kutta-Gill

17 Runge Methods

18 Kutta Methods

19 Runge-Kutta-Gill Methods

20 Systems of Equations All the previous methods can be applied to systems of differential equations Only illustrate the Runge method

21 Systems of Equations – Example 1

22 Systems of Equations – Example 2

23 Systems of Equations – Example 3

24 Systems of Equations – Example 4

25 Systems of Equations – Example 5
