Chapter 14 - Partial Derivatives - 14.3 Partial Derivatives - 14.3 Exercises: 29


$$\frac{\partial}{\partial x}F(x,y)=\cos(e^x);$$ $$\frac{\partial}{\partial y}F(x,y)=-\cos(e^y).$$

Work Step by Step

Here we will use the fact that $$\frac{d}{dx}\int_a^xf(t)dt=f(x)$$ if $a$ is a constant. Regard $y$ as constant and differentiate with respect to $x$: $$\frac{\partial}{\partial x}F(x,y)=\frac{\partial}{\partial x}\int_y^x\cos (e^t) dt=\cos(e^x).$$ Regard $x$ as constant and differentiate with respect to $y$: $$\frac{\partial}{\partial y}F(x,y)=\frac{\partial}{\partial y}\int_y^x\cos (e^t) dt=\frac{\partial}{\partial y}\left(-\int_x^y\cos(e^t)dt\right)=-\frac{\partial}{\partial y}\left(\int_x^y\cos(e^t)dt\right)=-\cos(e^y).$$
