Example 21 Compute derivative of (i) f(x) = sin 2x Let f (x) = sin 2x = 2 sin x cos x Let u = 2 sin x & v = cos x So, f(x) = uv ∴ f’(x) = (uv)’ = u’v + v’u Here, u = 2 sin x So, u’ = 2 cos x & v = cos x So, v’ = – sin x f’(x) = (uv)’ = u’v + v’ u = 2cos x . cos x + 2sin x ( – sin x) = 2cos2 x – 2sin2 x = 2 (cos2 x – sin2 x) = 2 cos 2x ∴ f’(x) = 2 cos 2x Example, 21 Compute derivative of (ii) g(x) = cot x g(x) = cot x = cos𝑥 sin𝑥 Let u = cos x & v = sin x ∴ g(x) = 𝑢𝑣 So, g’(x) = 𝑢𝑣′ Using quotient rule g’(x) = 𝑢′𝑣 − 𝑣′𝑢 𝑣2 Finding u’ & v’ u = cos x u’ = – sin x & v = sin x v’ = cos x Now, f’(x)= 𝑢𝑣′ = 𝑢′𝑣 − 𝑣′𝑢 𝑣2 = − sin𝑥 sin𝑥 − cos𝑥 ( cos𝑥) 𝑠𝑖𝑛2𝑥 = − sin2𝑥 − cos2𝑥 𝑠𝑖𝑛2𝑥 = −( 𝐬𝐢𝐧𝟐𝒙 + 𝐜𝐨𝐬𝟐𝒙) 𝑠𝑖𝑛2𝑥 = −𝟏 𝑠𝑖𝑛2𝑥 = – cosec2x Hence, f’(x) = – cosec2x
