Hi Matlabers,

I have problem on second order differential equation.
D2(y) = 20*sin(y) - 200

where D2(y) is second order diff of Y where Dy = dy/dt 
I try to use this:
Q = dsolve('D2y = -20*sin(y) - 200, 'y(0) = 0','Dy(0) = 0','t')
but it doesn't work because of sin(y).

Please give enlightment, Thanks.

Amadeo
