## Homework Statement

http://www.math.wvu.edu/~hjlai/Teaching/Tip-Pdf/Tip3-27.pdf

Example 7.

Not this question in particular, but it shows what I'm talking about.

I understand how they get the first partial derivative, but I'm completely lost as how to take a second one.

I have tried using the product rule in combination with the chain rule and I never get anywhere near the correct result. I have a feeling this is going to be on my calculus exam, so I want to make sure I understand it properly.

I've been looking at this for hours and can't wrap my head around. Could someone maybe explain step by step how to go from d/dr (dw/dr) to the result they got dor d2w/dr2? (I realize these are equivalent).
