OPMT 5701 Notes on Natural Logarithm and the Exponential e 1. The Number e if y = e x then dy dx = e x if y = e f ( x ) then dy dx = e f ( x ) · f 0 ( x ) 2. Examples (a) y = e 3 x dy dx = e 3 x (3) (b) y = e 7 x 3 dy dx = e 7 x 3 (21 x 2 ) (c) y = e rt dy dt = re rt 3. Logarithm (Natural log) ln x (a) Rules of natural log If Then y = AB ln y =ln( AB )=ln A +ln B y = A/B ln y =ln A ln B y = A b ln y =ln( A b )= b ln A NOTE: ln( A + B ) 6 =ln A +ln B EVER!!! (b) derivatives IF
