Calc I

I am having trouble taking the derivative of the following:

t(4-t^2)^(1/2)

I can't decide if you need to use the product rule or not.

What I did is used the PR to get

(4-t)^1/2)*1t^2*(4t-1)^(-1/2)

Is this correct?

  1. you do.

    f= t(4-t^2)^.5
    f'= (4-t^2)*.5 + .5t/(4-t^2)^.5 * 2t/1

    I can't reconcile yours with mine

    if g=uv
    g'= u'*v+ v'*u

    How do you get m=0? from taking the second derivative? does c=1? Can you check my work on how I get the derivative of R=M^2(c/2-m/3) NEXT R=1/2(CM^2)-1/3(M^3) NEXT dR/dM=CM-M^2. I checked in the back, and that was the answer for

    Decide if the following function f(x) is differentiable at x=0. Try zooming in on a graphing calculator, or calculating the derivative f'(0) from the definition. f(x) = x^4sin(2/x), if x is not equal to 0, and f(x) = 0 if x = 0.
