Separation of Variables and Initial Value Problem

Curated and Reviewed by Lesson Planet

Ap Calculus classes learn how to solve a differential equation by getting like variables together with a video that presents an example of how to solve a differential equation by using the method of separation of variables. The example continues to find the particular solution to an initial value problem.
