I have a problem, I’ve solved 2 diff equations and I have:

w1[y] == (E^(β*y))*(A1*cos[β*y] +

A2*sin[β*y]) + (E^(-β*y))*(A3*cos[β*y] +

A4*sin[β*y])

w2[y] == (E^(-β*y))*(A5*cos[β*y] + A6*sin[β*y])

I have also 6 equations to find constants A1-A6 :

w1”[0] == 0, w1”'[y] == -q*L , w1[L] == w2[L], w1′[L] == w2′[L],

w1”[L] == w2”[L], w1”'[L] == w2”'[L]

How should I write it so I can find constants?

Thanks for any help

You can format inline code and code blocks by selecting it and clicking the {} button above the edit window. The edit window help button ? is also useful for learning how to format your questions and answers.

Correct sin/cos to Sin/Cos. Define your functions properly: w1[y_] :=…. Then put your conditions to Solve and done.

w1[y_] := (E^(β*y))*(A1*Cos[β*y] + A2*Sin[β*y]) + (E^(-β*y))*(A3*Cos[β*y] +

A4*Sin[β*y]);

w2[y_] := (E^(-β*y))*(A5*Cos[β*y] + A6*Sin[β*y]);

vars = Symbol[“A” <> ToString[#]] & /@ Range[6]

{A1, A2, A3, A4, A5, A6}

Solve[

{w1”[0] == 0, w1”'[y] == -q*L, w1[L] == w2[L], w1′[L] == w2′[L],

w1”[L] == w2”[L], w1”'[L] == w2”'[L]},

vars
