DerivativesHi. I'm having some problems with doing derivatives. I have some of the answers for my homework, but I am stuck on others. For example, I know how to get the derivative of this problem: y=x^(ln(x)) y=x^(ln(x)) ln(y)=ln(x^(ln(x)) ln(y)=ln(x)ln(x) implicit differentiation+product rule yields (1/y)y'=(1/x)ln(x)+(1/x)ln(x) (1/y)y'=(2/x)ln(x) y'=(2/x)yln(x) =(2yln(x))/x However, I'm having problems finding derivatives for: 1) y=log (theta^2) 2) y=sin ?(1-u^2) 3) y= z (cos^-1) z-?(1-z^2) Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. |

1) log(theta) = 2log|theta| . . . can you differentiate log|theta|? 2) Use the chain rule. 3) Use the chain rule and the fact that the derivative of with respect to x is -1/?(1 - x²). |
