show that u(x,t)-sin(nx)e^(-n^(2)t) satisfies the heat equation df/dt = d^2f/dx^2 for any constant n? ok so what i think i have to do is find the partial and the second partial derivatives of the equation...then what do i do? show that u(x,t)-sin(nx)e^(-n^(2)t) satisfies the heat equation df/dt = d^2f/dx^2 for any constant n? ok so what i think i have to do is find the partial and the second partial derivatives of the equation...then what do i do? @Mathematics OpenStudy (anonymous):

Then see if they are equal! OpenStudy (anonymous):

so after solving both du/dt and d^2u/dx^2 i got them both to be -n^2sin(nx)e^(-n^(2)t)... is that what i am supposed to get? OpenStudy (anonymous):

You have $$u(x,t)=\sin(nx)e^{-n^2t} \implies \frac{\partial u}{\partial t}=\sin(nx)(-n^2e^{-n^2t})=-n^2\sin(nx)e^{-n^2t}$$. Now we should find the second partial derivative with respect to $$x$$ and see if they are the same. $$\frac{\partial u}{\partial x}=n\cos(nx)e^{-n^2t} \implies \frac{\partial^2 u}{\partial x^2}=-n^2 \sin(nx)e^{-n^2t}.$$ So, $$\frac{\partial^2 u}{\partial x^2}=\frac{\partial u}{\partial t}$$ and therefore it satisfies the heat equation.

Yeah! OpenStudy (anonymous):

cool thanks AnwarA! :) OpenStudy (anonymous):

You're welcome!
