To do this, we rearrange Eq. 14 into exactly the same form as Eq. 3 FIRST-ORDER EQUATIONS The most commonly occurring first-order equation in engineering analysis is the linear first-order equation (the I-factor equation) dy þ aðxÞy ¼ f ðxÞ dx ð2:13Þ ð2:12Þ Z IðxÞ ¼ exp aðxÞ dx ð2:18Þ where I(x) is called the integrating factor. This is the necessary and sufficient condition for the general solution, Eq. 15, to exist. 3 FIRST-ORDER EQUATIONS By comparing this with Eq. 2 To solve the differential equation Mðx; yÞ ¼ dy 2 À y¼x dx x ð2:19Þ Z 2 1 À dx ¼ expðÀ2 ln xÞ ¼ 2 x x @w ; @x Nðx; yÞ ¼ @w @y ð2:27Þ if w is to exist as a possible solution.

All of the techniques to follow aim for this final goal. However, the early mathematicians were also concerned with the inverse problem: Given the geometric curve y ¼ g(x), what is the underlying differential equation defining the curve? Thus, many of the classical mathematical methods take a purely geometric point of view, with obvious relevance to observations in astronomy. 1 Suppose a family of curves can be represented by x2 þ y2 À lx ¼ 0 ð2:5Þ Deduce the defining differential equation. Write the total differential, taking f ðx; yÞ ¼ x2 þ y2 À lx ¼ 0 ð2:6Þ df @f @f dy dy ¼ þ ¼ 2x À l þ 2y ¼0 dx @x @y dx dx ð2:7Þ hence, Applied Mathematics and Modeling for Chemical Engineers, Second Edition.

7. Write the “conservation law” for the volume element: Write flux and reaction rate terms using general symbols, which are taken as positive quantities, so that signs are introduced only as terms are inserted according to the rules of the conservation law, Eq. 1. 8. After rearrangement into the proper differential format, invoke the fundamental lemma of calculus to produce a differential equation. 9. , replace “þ generation” with “À depletion” in Eq. 1). 10. Write down all possibilities for boundary values of the dependent variables; the choice among these will be made in conjunction with the solution method selected for the defining (differential) equation.
