Calc 2.5a

  1. 1. What do you do when you can’t separate out y? 2.5 Implicit Differentiation
  2. 2. Up to now we have seen most equations in explicit form – that is, y in terms of x, like y = 2x 6 -5 (solved for y alone) Now we will work with equations written implicitly, like xy=8. This is the implicit form; it can be rewritten explicitly as y = 8/x Sometimes we can isolate y. Sometimes we can’t! For example, x 2 + 2y 3 + 4y = 2. So we will learn how to implicitly differentiate to handle any situation. When we find dy/dx, we are differentiating with respect to x. Anytime we see a term with x alone, we differentiate as usual. Whenever we differentiate a term involving y, we must apply the Chain Rule, because you are assuming there is some function where y could be written implicitly.
  3. 3. When we find dy/dx, we are differentiating with respect to x. Anytime we see a term with x alone, we differentiate as usual. Whenever we differentiate a term involving y, we must apply the Chain Rule, because you are assuming there is some function where y could be written implicitly. Ex 1 p. 141 Differentiating with Respect to x Variables agree: Use simple power rule Variables disagree: Use Chain Rule Product Rule,Chain

  6. 6. Input y = t, y=t for Play around with window values until you get graph shown. Would you like to see what this graph looks like?
  7. 7. Ex 3 p. 143 Representing graphs by differentiable functions. If possible, represent y as a differentiable function of x. Just a single point, so not differentiable Differentiable except at (1, 0) and (-1, 0) Differentiable except at (1, 0)
  8. 8. Ex 4 p.143 Finding the Slope of a Graph Implicitly Determine the slope of the tangent line to the graph of Differentiate with respect to x Get dy/dx terms alone, then solve for dy/dx Substitute x and y from point of tangency and simplify. If you want to do it the hard way, solve original equation for y and differentiate that.
  9. 9. Ex 5 p. 144 Finding the Slope of a Graph Implicitly Determine the slope of Plug in point (3, 1) This graph is called a lemniscate
  10. 10. Ex 6, p144 Determining a Differentiable Function Range Find dy/dx implicitly for equation sin y = x (note: inverse function y = sin -1 x). Find the largest interval for y values on which x is differentiable. Or alternatively, Graph becomes vertical at endpoints of interval!
