    This lecture focuses on the study of linear second-order differential equations with constant coefficients. A physics problem with a spring, a mass, and forces is discussed and a second-order ODE is written. Also, second-order ODEs are solved in this lecture. A really useful lecture to watch in order to learn second-order differential equations.
