Calculus Section 3.9 Page 48 3.9 Derivatives of Exponential and Logarithmic Fcns Derivative of y = e x Graph Y 1 = e x . Then graph the derivative of this function using the numerical derivative feature of your calculator: Y 2 = nDeriv Y 1 , X , X ( ) What do you notice? e x ( ) = e u ( ) = Example 1 Find the derivative of each function: a) y = e 3 x b) y = e x 3 c) y = e x d) y = e 4 - x e) y = e sin x f) y = e tan - 1 x g) y = xe x h) y = x 2 e x Example 2 How Fast does a Flu Spread? The spread of a flu in a certain school is modeled by the equation P t ( ) = 100 1 + e 3 - t where P t ( ) is the total number of students infected t days after the flu was first noticed.
