Re: Differential Calculus

#2 i)
3 (3x^2 + 4x - 5)^2  *(6x + 4)

i beg to be pardoned for how i express my equations smile

Re: Differential Calculus

lady einstein,
Your answer is perfectly right!
The answer can be expressed in LaTeX by using the following code:-

[math]3\left(3x^{2}+4x-5\right)^{2} \cdot \left(6x+4\right)[/math]

This would produce:

Re: Differential Calculus

1.(i) e^x
    -----
     cos(x)

Using Quotient Rule:
Let u=e^x, v=cos(x)
     du/dx=e^x, dv/dx=-sin(x)

dy/dx=   v(du/dx)-u(dv/dx)
               --------------------
                           cos^2(x)
         =    cosx(e^x)-e^x(-sin(x))
               ----------------------------
                            cos^2(x)
     

              =       -e^x(-cos(x)+sin(x))
                   -------------------------
                             cos^2(x)


(ii)    log(x)
      ------------
        sin(x)
Using Quotient Rule:
Let u=log(x), v=sin(x)
     du/dx= 1/x,  dv/dx=cos(x)

dy/dx=       v(du/dx)-u(dv/dx)
                  ---------------------
                            v^2
        =        sinx(1/x)-logx(cos(x))
                   -------------------------
                                sin^2(x)

         =        sin(x)/x-logx(cos(x))
                    ---------------------------
                            sin^2(x)
2. (i) y=(3x^2+4x-5)^3
Using Chain Rule:
Let u = 3x^2+4x-5, y=u^3
     du/dx=6x+4       dy/du= 3u^2

      dy/dx= 3(3x^2+4x-5)^2*(6x+4)



    (ii) y=e^3x^2+2x+3
         dy/dx=6x+2e^3x^2+2x+3
3. (i) y=e^2xcos(3x)
Using Product Rule:
Let u = e^2x,  v=cos(3x)
      du/dx=2e^2x, dv/dx=-3sin(3x)

dy/dx= -e^2x(3sin(3x)+2e^2x(cos(3x))

           
I love Calculus:D
Also, just a suggestion Ganesh.
Could you perhaps make exercises for Integration?

Re: Differential Calculus


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.
