What is an example of an absolutely continuous function on [a,b] whose derivative is unbounded?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I know that the function f: [-1,1] defined by f(x) = x^2sin(1/x^2) for x ≠ 0, f(0) = 0 is continuous and its derivative f'(x) = 2xsin(1/x^2)-2/xcos(1/x^2) for x ≠ 0, f'(0) = 0 is unbounded on [-1,1]. But this function isn't absolutely continuous...

Any help would be much appreciated : )
