Chapter 2 - The Derivative - 2.7 Implicit Differentiation - Exercises Set 2.7 - Page 166: 32



Work Step by Step

In order to derivate this function you have to apply implicit differentation method. First, take the function to it's f(v)=0 form $ u^{1/2}+v^{1/2}-5=0$ Then derivate the whole equation. Rember the put u' every time you derivate u $\dfrac{1}{2}u^{-1/2}+\dfrac{1}{2}v^{-1/2}=0$ Solve for a' and you have the answer $\dfrac{u'}{2\sqrt{u}} = \dfrac{-1}{2\sqrt{v}}$ $u'=-\dfrac{\sqrt{u}}{\sqrt{v}}$
