Implicit Differentiation with Three Variables

Description

Using implicit differentiation, compute the derivative zx for the function zx,y defined implicitly by the equation fx,y,z=gx,y,z.

 

Implicit Differentiation with Three Variables

Enter equation:

x2 +y2+z2=1

x2+y2+z2=1

(1)

Obtain zx:

implicitdiff, zx,y, x

xz

(2)

Stepwise Calculation:

Replace z with zx,y:

eval,z=zx,y

x2+y2+zx,y2=1

(3)

Apply   x:

diff,x

2x+2zx,yxzx,y=0

(4)

Isolate zx:

isolate, diffzx,y,x

xzx,y=xzx,y

(5)

Replace zx,y with z:

zx=evalrhs,zx,y=z

zx=xz

(6)

Commands Used

diff, eval, implicitdiff, isolate, rhs
