Implicit Differentiation (3

Name ______________________ AP Calculus AB

Chapter 3 Day 4 Implicit Differentiation (3.7)

We often have equations of graphs that don’t come in the convenient explicit form

33 . For example: . In such a case we must use what is called ;；yfxx4y6y8

implicit differentiation:

Steps for Implicit Differentiation: 1) Differentiate both sides with respect to x. dy on one side of the equation. 2) Collect the terms with dx dy 3) Factor out . dx

dy 4) Solve for . dx

dy2Example: Find if and find the slope of the tangent when . yxx4dx

22Example: Find the slope of the circle at the point ;；. xy253,4

dyExample: Show that the slope is defined at every point on the graph of dx

2 . 2yxsiny
