Implicit Differentiation Calculator

Online Tutoring Is The Easiest, Most Cost-Effective Way For Students To Get The Help They Need Whenever They Need It.

Differentiation is the process of finding the rate at which one variable changes with respect to the other. Implicit differentiation is a process of finding derivative of a function without separating the variables. Implicit differentiation calculator is the online tool which can easily give the derivative value of any function using this method.

Example 1: Find the implicit derivative of the function, 3x2 – y3= 4

Given function: 3x2 – y3 = 4

Now to find the implicit derivative, without solving for ‘y’ we start finding the derivative of each term of the function.

Power rule of the Derivatives -> d f(xn)/dx = n*xn-1

Applying the above formula to the given function, we get

6x – 3y2 (dy/dx) = 0  -> Derivative of a constant is ‘0’.

Now solve for ‘dy/dx’

-3y2(dy/dx) = -6x

dy/dx = -6x/-3y2 -> dy/dx = 2x/y2

Example 2:  Find the implicit derivative of the function, y3 + 2x= 1

Given function: y3 + 2x= 1

Now to find the implicit derivative, without solving for ‘y’ we start finding the derivative of each term of the function.

Power rule of the Derivatives -> d f(xn)/dx = n*xn-1

Applying the above formula to the given function, we get

3y2 (dy/dx) + 2 = 0 -> Derivative of a constant is ‘0’

Now solve for ‘dy/dx’

3y2(dy/dx) = -2

dy/dx = -2/3y2
