**Question 6**:

Find the differential equation of all non-horizontal lines in a plane.

Answer:

The general equation of all non-horizontal lines in a plane is

.

Therefore,

Again, differentiating both sides w. r. t. y, we get

**Question 7**:

Find the equation of a curve whose tangent at any point on it, different from origin, has slope

**Answer**:

Given

Integrating both sides, we get

## Long Answer (L. A.)

**Question 8**:

Find the equation of a curve passing through the point if the perpendicular distance of the origin from the normal at any point P of the curve is equal to the distance of P from the axis.

**Answer**:

Let the equation of normal at

Therefore, the length of perpendicular from origin to is

Also distance between P and axis is . Thus, we get

Case I:

Integrating both sides, we get , Substituting , we get .

Therefore, is the equation of curve (not possible, so rejected) .

Case II: Substituting , we get

Integrating both sides, we get

. Substituting , , we get .

Therefore, is the required equation.

**Question 9**:

Find the equation of a curve passing through . if the slope of the tangent to the curve at any point is

**Answer**:

According to the given condition

This is a homogeneous differential equation. Substituting , we get

which is the required equation.
