2.0 INTRODUCTION

Differentiation is used widely in solving problems especially in Engineering, Medical,
Commerce, Agriculture, and many other fields. When you find the rate of change of a
quantity with respect to another quantity, you are actually doing differentiation. Another
name for differentiation is the derivative of the function.

If a person is running up a hill, his vertical height will change with respect to his horizontal
height. This rate of change of vertical height with respect to horizontal height is called its

height horizontal of change
height vertical of change

Generally, to find the differentiation of y with respect to x, just write the symbol
dx
dy
to
represent it.

Differentiation concepts are applied in displacement and velocity . Velocity, v, is the
differentiation of displacement s, unto time, t, and is written as ds/dt , whilst acceleration,
a, is the differentiation of velocity, v, unto time, t, and is written as dv/dt.

UNIT 2 : DIFFERENTIATION

If y is a function of x, then, y = f(x),
The differentiation of y with respect to x,
dx
dy
, can be written as f '(x) .
Therefore,
dx
dy
= f '(x)

2.1 IDENTIFY BASIC DIFFERENTIATION FORMULAE.

2.1.1 THE BASIC RULE OF DIFFERENTIATION
Differentiation of simple algebraic functions is quite easy. Look at the samples below.

If y = x
1
,
dx
dy
= 1x
0
= 1.
If y = x
2
,
dx
dy
= 2x
1
= 2x.
If y = x
3
,
dx
dy
= 3x
2
.

From the pattern shown above, if y = x
4
,
then
,
dx
dy
= 4x
3
.
The first Rule of Differentiation is:

i. Multiply the index of x with the constant for x.
ii. Decrease the index of x by 1 unit.

Thus:

, for all values of n.

, where a is a constant.

2.4 SECOND ORDER DIFFERENTIATION
We can find the second derivative by using various technique of differentiation.

Finding the second derivative for parametric equation is a little trickier.
We use the fact that:

For example, to find the second derivative in the above example, therefore:
