I have the differential equation:
y'' + a2y = cos[ (2a-3) t ]
I am told that the equation shows resonance.
I understand how to solve this type of question when a number is given in-front of the y term, however this has been replaced with 'a'.
Im unsure of how to calculate a. I understand that the '2a-3' must be part of the complimentary function to show resonance, but i'm unable to see the link between the a2 term and the 2a-3. Any help please?
