Solution of differential equation xdy – ydx = 0 represents:
A. a rectangular hyperbola

B. parabola whose vertex is at origin

C. straight line passing through origin

D. a circle whose centre is at origin

Answer :

Let us solve the differential equation


xdy – ydx = 0


xdy = ydx



log y = log x + c


log y – log x = c


Using log a – log b = log




y = ecx


ec is a constant because e is a constant and c is the integration constant let it be denoted as k hence ec = k


y = kx


The equation y = kx is equation of a straight line and (0, 0) satisfies the equation hence
