A separable differential equation can be expressed as the product of a function of x and a function of y. Example: Multiply both sides by dx and divide both sides by y2 to separate the variables. (Assume y2 is never zero.)

Separable Differential Equations
A separable differential equation can be expressed as the product of a function of x and a function of y. Example: Combined constants of integration

Example: Separable differential equation Combined constants of integration

p Example: We now have y as an implicit function of x.
We can find y as an explicit function of x by taking the tangent of both sides. Notice that we can not factor out the constant C, because the distributive property does not work with tangent. p
