# Stimulus-response The relation between the magnitude of a sensation y and the magnitude of the stimulus x is given by y = k ( x   —   x 0 ) n where k is a constant, x 0 is the threshold of effective stimulus, and n depends on the type of stimulus. Find the rate of change of sensation with respect to the amount of stimulus for each of Problems 42-44.For the stimulus of warmth y = k ( x − x 0 ) 8 / 5

To determine

To calculate: The rate of change of sensation with respect to the amount of stimulus of warmth y=k(xx0)8/5, where k is a constant, x0 is the threshold of effective stimulus.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided function is y=k(xx0)8/5.

Formula used:

The power rule of differentiation,

ddxxn=nxn1

Calculation:

Consider the provided function,

y=k(xx0)8/5

Consider (xx0) to be u,

y=ku8/5

Differentiate both sides with respect to x,

dydx=ddx(ku8/5)

Simplify using the power rule,

dydx=k85u851dudx=8k5u3/5dudx

Substitute (xx0
