### Modified Euler method

Use modified Euler method with (h=0.1) to solve the following differential equation:

d2y/dx2=2+y/x , Where y(1)=1 for x=1 to 1.4

### Re: Modified Euler method

Hi ammar;

The Euler method ( modified or not ) is usually for a first order ODE.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.

### Re: Modified Euler method

Yes,but we can solve it by  change the second derivative to first derivative but how to change this equation ?

### Re: Modified Euler method

Yes, you can change any second order de into 2 first order or coupled ones.

I have to get offline for a bit, in the meantime watch this video. When I get back if it still is a problem then we will work on it.

my problem is : can I assume dy/dx=z when this equation does not contain dy/dx

Hi;

Is the first equation, the second is

You left out an initial condition in your original problem.

### Re: Modified Euler method

There should be a y'(x) too. But just to get the 2 equations you do not need it.

∫d2y/dx2=∫(2+y/x)

dy/dx=2x+y*ln(x) , is this correct ?

### Re: Modified Euler method

But I think it's would be dy/dx=2x+y*ln(x)+constant

and if we have a boundary condition (dy/dx) I will find the constant

but in the question the boundary is  y(1)=1, that's not work

That is why I asked you what the initial conditions were. You need 2, y(1) = 1 and y'(x) = something.

How can you determine the constant without another initial condition?
