What is the derivative of square root x ?

f(x)= x^n
f'= n x^(n1)
Doesn't n= 1/2 in the squareroot case? 
Oh now I see Thank You

Oh pardon me i meant to ask what is the antiderivative of square root x

Find the derivative of f(x) = (square root of x)(ln x). Using my notes, I came up with f'(x) = (1/2*square root of x)/x The answer in the back of the book says f'(x) = (2+ln x)/(2*square root of x). Can someone please explain how?
