| Determine the order and degree of the differential equation given by

A. 2, 1

B. 1, 1

C. Not defined, 1

D. Neither order nor degree is defined

Right Answer is: B

SOLUTION

Given

The given equation may be written as

In this equation, the order of highest order derivative i.e.  is 1.

Now, Degree of a D.E. is the power of the highest order derivative which occurs in it, after the derivatives have been made free from radicals and fractions.

Here power of the highest order derivative is 1, so the degree of D.E. is 1.
