(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

In calculus, I learn that the derivative of the inverse function is

g'(x) = 1/ f'(g(x))

2. Relevant equations

So..

3. The attempt at a solution

Can someone give me an example of where I need to know this, or is this just a math exercise. Is there a relatively simple physics example?
