Differentiation Formulas | Derivative Formulas List

Differentiation formulas list has been provided here for students so that they can refer to these to solve problems based on differential equations. This is one of the most important topics in higher class Mathematics. The general representation of the derivative is d/dx.

Differentiation Formulas List

Some of the general differentiation formulas are;

  1. Power Rule: (d/dx) (xn ) = nxn-1
  2. Derivative of a constant, a:  (d/dx) (a) = 0
  3. Derivative of a constant multiplied with function f: (d/dx) (a. f) = af’
  4.  Sum Rule: (d/dx) (f ± g) = f’ ± g’
  5. Product Rule: (d/dx) (fg)= fg’ + gf’ 
  6. Quotient Rule:d/dx(f/g) = (gf′–fg′)/g2

Frequently Asked Questions – FAQs

What is d/dx?

The general representation of the derivative is d/dx. This denotes the differentiation with respect to the variable x.

What is a UV formula?

(d/dx)(uv) = v(du/dx) + u(dv/dx)
This formula is used to find the derivative of the product of two functions.

What are the derivatives of trigonometric functions?

The derivatives of six trigonometric functions are:
(d/dx) sin x = cos x
(d/dx) cos x = -sin x
(d/dx) tan x = sec^2 x
(d/dx) cosec x = -cosec x cot x
(d/dx) sec x = sec x tan x
(d/dx) cot x = -cosec^2 x
