Homework Help: Periodic function

  1. Feb 3, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Is the derivative of a periodic function periodic?
    Is the integral of a periocic function periodic?

    2. Relevant equations

    a function if periodic if f(x)=f(x+p)

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I think that the derivative won't be periodic but the integral will. i'm not really sure if i'm right or not though.

    If this is an opinion poll, I think the opposite is true. Spell out why you think so and we can compare opinions. Try sin(x)+1.
