Learn Chapter 6 Application of Derivatives (AOD) of Class 12 free with solutions of all NCERT Questions for Maths Boards

We learned Derivatives in the last chapter, in Chapter 5 Class 12. In this Chapter we will learn the applications of those derivatives.

The topics in the chapter include

- Finding
**rate of change** - Checking if a function is
**increasing or decreasing****in an interval** - Checking if a function is increasing or decreasing
**in whole domain** - Finding if function is
**strictly**increasing or decreasing in an interval - Finding
**equation (and slope) of tangent**and normal using derivatives - Finding
**approximate value**of numbers and functions - Finding minimum and maximum values
**from graph**of a function - Definition of - Maxima, Minima, Absolute Maxima, Absolute Minima, Point of Inflexion
- Finding
**local maxima, local minima**using**first derivative test** - Finding local maxima, local minima using
**second derivative test** - Finding maximum and minimum values in closed interval (
**Finding Absolute Maxima and Absolute Minima**) - Statement questions of maxima and minima where we form equations and solve
