I am trying to find the first and second derivative using the chain rule of the following:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

u sin(x^2)

This is what I have but I don't think it is correct. Can someone pls let me know?

first derivative: u * 2x cos(x^2) + sin(x^2) u'

second derivative:

u * 2( x * -2sin(x^2) + cos(x^2)) + 2xcos(x^2)* u' + sin(x^2)*u" + u'* 2xcos(x^2)

Any help thanks
