(10) Suggested Exercises: 3.6: #10, 14, 22, 39; Trace-Determinant plane: Use the TD plane to determine the type of system (sink, source, saddle, spiral sink, spiral source, periodic) given in 3.2#3, 6 and 3.4 #5, 9; 4.1:#3,6, 4.2: #6, 23.

(11) Study guide for Exam 3: 

  1. For the systems 3.2 #3, 7, (a) find the general solution (b) sketch the phase portrait
  2. For the system 3.4 #5, 9, Use the TD plane to determine the type of system (sink, source, saddle, spiral sink, spiral source, periodic). If spiral or periodic, determine direction of oscillation: clockwise or counterclockwise.
  3. For 3.6 #15, (a) write the second order differential equation, (b) find general solution y(t) (DON'T change to system and solve system.) (c) classify oscillator: overdamped, underdamped, critically damped, or undamped.
  4. Find the general solution for 4.1 #5, 4.3 #1
  5. Think about it: does linearity principle hold for a non-homogeneous second order linear equation?
