Find a function f such that the curve y = f(x) satisfies y'' = 12x, passes through the point (0,1), and has a horizontal tangent there. I can use the anti-derivatives to get y = 2x^3 + Cx + D but I don't know how to get C even though I know D = 1.

What is the derivative of the this functon? g(x) = -500/x, x cannot equal 0. I know that in order to fnd the derivative I need to put the function into the equation for evaluating derivatives as limits. lim as h -> 0 (f(x+h) - f(x))/h I did this, but I am having ...

How do you determine that a certain reagent will result in syn addition, anti addition, or be nonstereospecific? For instance the addition of H2/Pt to a cis-cyclic alkene results in a syn addition. HCl in water is nonstereospecific and Br2 in CCl4 is an anti addition. How can ...

What is wrong with the following reasoning??? f(x) = 2^x f'(x) = x[2^(x-1)] Although n x^(n-1) is the derivative of x^n, you cannot apply similar rules when x is the exponent and the number being raised to a power is a constant. The derivative of b^x, where b is a constant, is...
