**Implicit Differentiation**

Section 2.5

2
**Explicit Differentiation**

You have been taught to differentiate functions in explicit form, meaning y is defined in terms of x. Examples: The derivative is Whenever you can solve for y in terms of x, do so.

3
**Explicit Differentiation**

Example: Find Whenever possible, rewrite in explicit form (solve for y). Then take the derivative of y with respect to x.

4
**Implicit Differentiation**

Sometimes, however, y can’t be written in terms of x as demonstrated in the following: We need to differentiate implicitly.

5
**Implicit Differentiation**

Remember, we are differentiating with respect to x. Using the general power rule and chain rule, we have Variables agree Simple power rule

6
**Implicit Differentiation**

If variables do not agree, then use the chain rule. Variables disagree Variables disagree Variables disagree

7
**Implicit Differentiation**

Using Implicit Differentiation to Find dy/dx: Four Steps to Success Differentiate both sides of the equation with respect to x. Get all terms containing dy/dx alone on one side of the equation. Factor out dy/dx. Solve for dy/dx by dividing both sides of the equation by the expression remaining in parentheses.
