# IMPLICIT DIFFERENTIATION

A function is in the form f(x, y) = 0 is called implicit function.

For example x2 + 2xy = 0, where y is directly defined as a function of x.

In case of implicit functions, if y be a differentiable function of x, no attempt is required to express y as an explicit function of x for finding out ᵈʸ⁄d. In such case differentiation of both sides with respect to x and solve for ᵈʸ⁄d.

In each case, find ᵈʸ⁄d.

Example 1 :

x2 + y2 = 25

Solution :

x2 + y2 = 25

Differentiate both sides with respect to x.

Example 2 :

4x3y2 + 3x = 1

Solution :

4x3y2 + 3x = 1

Differentiate both sides with respect to x.

Example 3 :

x2y2 + 3xy + y = 0

Solution :

x2y2 + 3xy + y = 0

Differentiate both sides with respect to x.

Example 4 :

sin(x2+ y2) = ey

Solution :

sin(x2+ y2) = ey

Differentiate both sides with respect to x.

Example 5 :

ln(x2+ y2) = 3x

Solution :

ln(x2+ y2) = 3x

Differentiate both sides with respect to x.

Example 6 :

esiny = 2xy + 5

Solution :

esiny = 2xy + 5

Differentiate both sides with respect to x.
