```hi all,
greetings from sunny malaysia!
this pertains to solving a  DE numerically at 5 differnt points.Should be straigth forward. But i get different results when i try to insert one parameter "by hand".have i overlooked something?

any feed-back will be most appreciated

In:= pw3 = Piecewise[{{V0, x < a}, {V0, x == a}}, 0];
k = Sqrt[10 - pw3];
V0 = -1;
a = 2;
Table[{x, k}, {x, 1, 5}]
(*Plot[Piecewise[{{V0, x<a}, {V0,x==a}},0],{x,0,5}]*)

Out= {{1, Sqrt}, {2, Sqrt}, {3, Sqrt}, {4, Sqrt[
10]}, {5, Sqrt}}

Solve the following DE numerically for y1[
1.0], y1[2.0], y1, y1, y1

In:=
s33 = NDSolve[{(y1^\[Prime]\[Prime])[x] + Sqrt[k] y1[x] == 0,
y1[0.1] == 0, Derivative[y1][0.1] == 1/10^6}, y1, {x, 1, 10}];

We obtain

In:= {y1[1.0], y1[2.0], y1, y1, y1} /. s33

Out= {{6.9408*10^-7,
4.08303*10^-7, -5.09458*10^-7, -6.64851*10^-7, 1.70684*10^-7}}

now check the output above for the values  x =
1 to x = 5. For x = 1, 2,
we insert k =
Sqrt by hand in the same DE above and work out the values for \
the same points again.  We get

In:=
s11 = NDSolve[{(y11^\[Prime]\[Prime])[x] + Sqrt[ 11] y11[x] == 0,
y11[0.1] == 0, Derivative[y11][0.1] == 1/10^6},
y11, {x, 1, 10}];

In:= {y11[1.0], y11[2.0]} /. s11

Out= {{5.47931*10^-7, -1.68202*10^-7}}

Out= {{5.47931*10^-7, -1.68202*10^-7}}

For x = 3, 4, 5, k = Sqrt. We get

In:=
s11 := NDSolve[{(y11^\[Prime]\[Prime])[x] + Sqrt y11[x] == 0,
y11[0.1] == 0, Derivative[y11][0.1] == 1/10^6},
y11, {x, 1, 10}];

In:= {y11, y11, y11} /. s11

Out= {{-5.30318*10^-7, 3.34051*10^-7, 4.16315*10^-7}}

Qn : Should  the values for  y11[1-5] be any different from that calculated earlier ie  y1[1-5]?
