How to Find Second Derivative Calculator?
Derivatives deals with the variables such as x and y, functions f(x), and the corresponding changes in the variables x and y. The derivative of a function is represented by f '(x). It means that the function is the derivative of y with respect to the variable x. The symbol dy and dx are called differentials. The process of finding derivatives is called differentiation.
The second derivative is defined as the derivative of the derivative of a function also known as double differentiation of given function. It is represented by f ''(x) or d2f / dx2
There are common functions and rules we follow to find derivatives
Find the second derivative value of 5x3 + 2x2
f '(x) = d / dx( 5x3 + 2x2)
= d / dx ( 5x3) + d / dx(2x2)
Using multiplication by constant and power rule,
= (5 × 3x3 - 1) + (2 × 2x2 - 1)
= 15x2 + 4x
f ''(x) = d2f / dx2
= d / dx(15x2 + 4x)
= 30x + 4
Therefore, the second derivative value of 5x3 + 2x2 is 30x + 4
Similarly, you can use the calculator to find the value of the second derivative for the following:
- x3 / 2
- 5x2 + 6y2
