Get answers to all NCERT exercises, examples and miscellaneous questions of Chapter 13 Class 11 Limits and Derivatives free at teachoo. All solutions are prepared step-by-step wise, with concepts, formulas and detailed explanation of each and every question.


This chapter is the introduction to Calculus.

Calculus includes Limits, Continuity, Derivatives, Applications of Derivatives (like slope and rate of change), Integration, Application of Integration (like finding area) and Differential Equations. We will study about Limits, and Derivatives in this chapter. Rest of the topics are included in Class 12.


In this chapter, we will learn

  • What limit is
  • Finding limits by putting values
  • Finding limits of questions with 0/0 form
  • Finding limits using xn - an formula
  • Finding limits using Trigonometric Formula (sin x/x and 1-cos x)
  • Checking if limit exists, using Right Hand Limit and Left Hand Limit
  • What a derivative is
  • Finding derivatives at a point using first principle
  • Finding derivatives at the whole domain using first principle
  • Product rule of derivatives (uv)' = u'v + v'u
  • Quotient rule of derivatives (u/v)' = (u'v - v'u)/v2
  • Finding derivatives using formulas
