Phase Plane Analysis :Need help
Posted:
Feb 4, 2005 12:58 AM


Hi, I did Phase plane analysis for the following equation
0.1(d2y/dt2 )+ dy/dt + 10 = 0
The trajectories im getting are straight lines parallel to the yaxis after obtaining the singular points at y = 0 and y = 10 . (using the slope method i.e. letting (d2y/dt2)/(dy/dt) = A and plotting for various values of A )And i have no equilibrium points .I dont know if what i have done is correct .Can anybody tell me if it is correct and if not the right way to do it ? (plotting dy/dt against y from the equation)
Thanks
