Second order differential equation

[QUOTE="christoff, post: 4396009, member: 420420"] I do not see how this equation is second-order. Where is the second derivative of y? So where are you stuck? What are you doing? It bothers me a little that you seem to be using an integrating factor on a nonlinear differential equation; typically, multiplying by an integrating factor is something you do when the the DE is linear (this one isn't since you have a y^2 term). This differential equation is nonlinear, so it must be one of the types that can be solved explicitly (if this is a homework problem). Can it be shown to be exact, homogeneous, or Bernoulli? (Hint: it can.) [/QUOTE]
