Solutions

Chapter 3.3, Problem 28E
To determine

Find the value of the second derivative at the given point.

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 28E

The value of f"(π6)=14 .

Explanation of Solution

Given:

The given function is f(t)=csct and the given pointis f"(π6) .

Calculation:

Find the second derivative of the function.

  f(t)=csctf'(t)=csctcott

Apply product rule.

  (fg)'=gf'+fg'

  f"(t)=[cottddt(csct)+csctddt(cott)]

Use derivative rule ddx(cscx)=cosxcotx and ddx(cotx)=csc2x .

  f"(t)=[cott(csctcotx)+csct(csc2t)]f"(t)=csctcot2t+csc3t

  f"(π6)=csc(π6)cot2(π6)+csc3(π6)=2(3)2+23=6+8=14

Hence thevalueof f"(π6)=14 .
