To solve this differential equation, we should first set up the variables.
The question is asking for the rate of change of A compared with time which is simply denoted
d A d t
For this Differential Equation we will also need a proportionalityconstant. A proportionality constant is something that is multiplied by a proportional function in order to make the given statement true. We need these for all proportions that are not 1 to 1. Since the problem does not specify what the proportion is, we will denote the proportion constant as K.
We are now ready to set up our Differential Equation:
d A d t = k A 2
