find the 1st and 2nd derivative of the following equation
step by step.
Any ideas on this one? if this is a function of z, and you're differentiating with respect to z, does the product rule sound familiar?
Ok, I get it
it is -2Z (-2z)e^-(z^2) - [e^-(z^2)*(-2)]
4z^2 * e^-(z^2) + 2e^-(z^2)
Yep, that's the way to go.
But are you sure about that minus sign?
Can you quote the product rule?
Oh, I am so sorry it is
-2Z (-2z)e^-(z^2)+ [e^-(z^2)*(-2)]
So, we will have
that looks right. Remember, (first) *(derivative of the second) + (second) * (derivative of first). Of course you can change the order, same answer.
thanks alot for all!!!!
