Unformatted text preview: Page 46 Determine the derivative of the inverse tangent function: Two new formulas: Arctan x ( ) = tan-1 x ( ) = Arctan u ( ) = tan-1 u ( ) = Example 4 A particle moves along a line so that its position at any time t 0 is s t ( ) = tan-1 t . What is the velocity of the particle when t = 16? Example 5 a) Find an equation for the line tangent to the graph of y = tan x at the point - 4 ,-1 . b) Find an equation for the line tangent to the graph of y = tan-1 x at the point -1,- 4 . There are other inverse trigonometric functions . Here are their derivative formulas: Calculus Section 3.6 Page47 cos-1 u ( ) = cot-1 u ( ) = sec-1 u ( ) = csc-1 u ( ) = Example 5 Find dy dx for y = sin 1 x Assignment II8 Pages 162 163 #1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 10, 11, 13, 16, 19 Additional Question: Given y = sin-1 x-1-x 2 , determine y ....
