Wronskian of $$$e^{4 t}$$$, $$$e^{- \frac{7 t}{2}}$$$

The calculator will find the Wronskian of the $$$2$$$ functions $$$e^{4 t}$$$, $$$e^{- \frac{7 t}{2}}$$$, with steps shown.

If the calculator did not compute something or you have identified an error, or you have a suggestion/feedback, please write it in the comments below.

Your Input

Calculate the Wronskian of $$$\left\{f_{1} = e^{4 t}, f_{2} = e^{- \frac{7 t}{2}}\right\}$$$.


The Wronskian is given by the following determinant: $$$W{\left(f_{1},f_{2} \right)}\left(t\right) = \left|\begin{array}{cc}f_{1}\left(t\right) & f_{2}\left(t\right)\\f_{1}^{\prime}\left(t\right) & f_{2}^{\prime}\left(t\right)\end{array}\right|.$$$

In our case, $$$W{\left(f_{1},f_{2} \right)}\left(t\right) = \left|\begin{array}{cc}e^{4 t} & e^{- \frac{7 t}{2}}\\\left(e^{4 t}\right)^{\prime } & \left(e^{- \frac{7 t}{2}}\right)^{\prime }\end{array}\right|.$$$

Find the derivatives (for steps, see derivative calculator): $$$W{\left(f_{1},f_{2} \right)}\left(t\right) = \left|\begin{array}{cc}e^{4 t} & e^{- \frac{7 t}{2}}\\4 e^{4 t} & - \frac{7 e^{- \frac{7 t}{2}}}{2}\end{array}\right|.$$$

Find the determinant (for steps, see determinant calculator): $$$\left|\begin{array}{cc}e^{4 t} & e^{- \frac{7 t}{2}}\\4 e^{4 t} & - \frac{7 e^{- \frac{7 t}{2}}}{2}\end{array}\right| = - \frac{15 e^{\frac{t}{2}}}{2}.$$$


The Wronskian equals $$$- \frac{15 e^{\frac{t}{2}}}{2}$$$A.
