# 15.    Find the equation of a curve passing through the point (0, 0) and whose differential equation is $y' = e^x\sin x$.

H Harsh Kankaria

We first find the general solution of the given differential equation

Given,

$y' = e^x\sin x$

$\\ \implies \int dy = \int e^x\sin xdx$

$\\ Let I = \int e^x\sin xdx \\ \implies I = \sin x.e^x - \int(\cos x. e^x)dx \\ \implies I = e^x\sin x - [e^x\cos x - \int(-\sin x.e^x)dx] \\ \implies 2I = e^x(\sin x - \cos x) \\ \implies I = \frac{1}{2}e^x(\sin x - \cos x)$

$\\ \therefore y = \frac{1}{2}e^x(\sin x - \cos x) + c$

Now, Since the curve passes through (0,0)

y = 0 when x =0

$\\ \therefore 0 = \frac{1}{2}e^0(\sin 0 - \cos 0) + c \\ \implies c = \frac{1}{2}$

Putting the value of c, we get:

$\\ \therefore y = \frac{1}{2}e^x(\sin x - \cos x) + \frac{1}{2} \\ \implies 2y -1 = e^x(\sin x - \cos x)$
