Abstract: The exact solution $ \phi $ of a particular nonlinear partial differential equation is obtained in terms of solution u of a related linear partial differential equation. It is noted that solution $ \phi $ may be found subject to initial conditions if certain initial conditions can be determined for solution u. Two examples are solved explicitly.
