Hi, You use th same updated global variable in the two Manipulate[] and you are wondering why the change in one Manipulate[] also cause to change the second Manipulate[] ,re-cause the change in the first, cause the change in the second .. and so on. Use clean conde with local variables and: Module[{dsol, b, k, b0, bp0, t}, dsol = DSolve[{b''[t] == -Subscript[k, 1] Subscript[k, 2] b[t] - Subscript[k, 1] b'[t], b[0] == b0, b'[0] == bp0}, b[t], t][[1]]; Manipulate[ Plot[Evaluate[ b[t] /. dsol /. {Subscript[k, 1] -> k1, Subscript[k, 2] -> k2, b0 -> \[ScriptB]0, bp0 -> \[ScriptB]p0}], {t, 0, 10}], {k1, 0.1, 10}, {k2, 0.1, 10}, {\[ScriptB]0, 0.1, 10}, {\[ScriptB]p0, 0.1, 10}] ] works fine.
