As with the sine, we don't know anything about derivatives that allows us to compute the derivatives of the exponential and logarithmic functions without going back to basics. Yes it does, but we will not prove this fact.
Now we consider the logarithmic function with arbitrary base and obtain a formula for its derivative.
We can now use derivatives of logarithmic and exponential functions to solve various types of problems eg. Cessna taking off. A Cessna plane takes off from an airport at sea level and its altitude in feet at time t in minutes is given by. At low altitudes, where the air is more dense, the rate of climb is good, but as you go higher, the rate decreases. Note: In aviation, height above sea level is meaured in feet. It is regarded as a metric unit and is used universally in aviation instrumentation and charts.
So far, we have learned how to differentiate a variety of functions, including trigonometric, inverse, and implicit functions. In this section, we explore derivatives of exponential and logarithmic functions. As we discussed in Introduction to Functions and Graphs , exponential functions play an important role in modeling population growth and the decay of radioactive materials. Logarithmic functions can help rescale large quantities and are particularly helpful for rewriting complicated expressions. Just as when we found the derivatives of other functions, we can find the derivatives of exponential and logarithmic functions using formulas. As we develop these formulas, we need to make certain basic assumptions. The proofs that these assumptions hold are beyond the scope of this course.
As with the sine function, we don't know anything about derivatives that allows us to compute the derivatives of the exponential and logarithmic functions without going back to basics. Let's do a little work with the definition again:. Yes it does, but we will prove this property at the end of this section.
So far, we have learned how to differentiate a variety of functions, including trigonometric, inverse, and implicit functions.
The derivative of ln x. The derivative of e with a functional exponent. The derivative of ln u x. The general power rule. In the next Lesson , we will see that e is approximately 2.
The derivative of a logarithmic function is the reciprocal of the argument. As always, the chain rule tells us to also multiply by the derivative of the argument. Differentiate by taking the reciprocal of the argument. Don't forget the chain rule! Differentiate using the formula for derivatives of logarithmic functions.
d dx. (loge x) = 1 x. We can use these results and the rules that we have learnt already to differentiate functions which involve exponentials or logarithms. Example.
Хейл поставил масло на место и направился к своему компьютеру, располагавшемуся прямо напротив рабочего места Сьюзан. Даже за широким кольцом терминалов она почувствовала резкий запах одеколона и поморщилась. - Замечательный одеколон, Грег. Вылил целую бутылку.

Она была абсолютно уверена, что не вводила такой команды - во всяком случае, намеренно. Подумала, что, может быть, спутала последовательность нажатия клавиш. Немыслимо, - подумала. Согласно информации, появившейся в окне, команда была подана менее двадцати минут. Сьюзан помнила, что за последние двадцать минут вводила только свой персональный код, когда выходила переговорить со Стратмором.
The next set of functions that we want to take a look at are exponential and logarithm functions.
