RE: symbolic solve differential equations HP50g - Steve Keeley - 04-25-2014 02:59 AM Try this: 2: ['d1y(t) = 2*t' 'y(0) = 4'] 1: 'y(t)' DESOLVE (See page 16-9 in the HP 50g Manual) RE: symbolic solve differential equations HP50g - tgahan - 04-25-2014 08:46 AM Hi Steve Thanks very much. Worked exactly as you said. Only got this calculator yesterday so very novice user. How would it be coded in algebraic mode for the same example thanks again RE: symbolic solve differential equations HP50g - Steve Keeley - 04-25-2014 10:22 AM I'm not sure, since I never use algebraic mode. I'd guess: DESOLVE( ['d1y(t) = 2*t' 'y(0) = 4'],y(t)) or maybe DESOLVE( [d1y(t) = 2*t, y(0) = 4],y(t)) Experiment. RE: symbolic solve differential equations HP50g - tgahan - 04-25-2014 11:37 AM Hi Steve Your idea for ALG mode worked perfect. The second option without the quotes. I never thought of the square brackets. I had even tried pasting the level 2 format you gave me in your first post for rpn mode back into ALG mode but it would not work, only gave the general solution. Thanks again ever so much
