Find degree of $$\frac{d^2y}{dx^2}=\sin \left(\frac{dy}{dx}\right)$$

Since highest order derivative is $2$ and its power is one. Can we say degree is one.

  • $\begingroup$ Order 2 degree 1 as you said. $\endgroup$ – user121049 Sep 28 '17 at 9:31
  • $\begingroup$ This is an order 2 differential equation, but the degree is not defined. See other postings like this. $\endgroup$ – Sangchul Lee Sep 28 '17 at 9:35
  • $\begingroup$ What is the degree good for? Never heard this kind of concept for differential equations. Does it have any use or is it just a definition. $\endgroup$ – MrYouMath Sep 28 '17 at 11:16
