Misc 15 - Find derivative: cosec x cot x - Chapter 13 Limits - Derivatives by formula - other trignometric



  1. Chapter 13 Class 11 Limits and Derivatives
  2. Serial order wise


Misc 15 Find the derivative of the following functions (it is to be understood that a, b, c, d, p, q, r and s are fixed non-zero constants and m and n are integers): cosec x cot x Let f(x) = cosec x cot x Let u = cosec x & v = cot x So, f(x) = uv f (x) = (uv) Using product rule f (x) = u v + v u Finding u & v u = cosec x u = cosec x cot x v = cot x v = cosec2x Now, f (x) = (uv) = u v + v u = cosec x cot x (cot x) + ( cosec2x) (cosec x) = cosec x . cot2 x cosec3x = cosec3x cosec x cot2x
