Chapter 20: Solving Differential Equations



In earlier sections, we discussed models for various phenomena, and these led to differential equations whose solutions, with appropriate additional conditions, describes behavior of the systems involved, according to these models.
In this Chapter we discuss how to use a spreadsheet to find solutions to such differential equations.
