Differentiation Review
Introduction
When we differentiate a function with respect to a variable we are finding the rate of change of that
function with respect to the variable. The most common variables we differentiate with respect to are
time (so we obt
B. Lab Reports
The results of scientific research are usually published in scientific journals. Certain conventions
with respect to form and style have become widely accepted in the scientific community, with
some variations between disciplines. Writing l
