# Higher-Order DifferentiationIn Exercises 23–26, find (a) r ′ ( t ) , (b) r ″ ( t ) , and (c) r ′ ( t ) ⋅ r ″ ( t ) , and (d) r ′ ( t ) × r ″ ( t ) . r ( t ) = 〈 e − t , t 2 , tan t 〉

(a)

To determine

To calculate: The derivative r'(t) for the function r(t)=et,t2,tant.

Explanation

Given:

The provided function is r(t)=et,t2,tant.

Formula used:

The differentiation of the function et with respect to t is:

et.

Calculation:

Consider the function r(t)=et,t2,tant.

Differentiate the function with respect to t,

r(t)=ddt(r

(b)

To determine

To calculate: The second derivative r''(t) for the function r(t)=et,t2,tant.

(c)

To determine

To calculate: The dot product r'(t)r''(t) for the function r(t)=et,t2,tant.

(d)

To determine

To calculate: The cross product r'(t)×r''(t) for the function r(t)=et,t2,tant.
