How To: Interpret derivatives of marginal cost and revenue

This video tells us the method of interpreting derivatives of marginal cost and revenue. If C(x) is the cost of producing x units of a product, C(400) would be the cost to produce 400 units. Now marginal cost is the cost of producing one unit which is equal to the derivative of the cost function or C'(400) which is equal to limit of h tends to zero or lim h->0 [lim(400+h)-lim(400)]/h which is approximately equal to [lim(401)-lim(400)]/1. Similarly, if R(x) is your revenue function, marginal r...

How To: Use the Chain Rule for finding derivatives

JustMathTutoring This video shows the procedure of finding derivatives using the Chain Rule. The Chain Rule states that the derivative of a composition of functions is the derivative of the outside function evaluated at the inside multiplied by the derivative of the inside. This can be stated as if h(x) = f[g(x)] then h'(x)=f'[g(x)]g'(x). This is explained by two examples. In the first example we find the derivative of the sine of square of 'x'. We take the derivative of sine at square of 'x'...

How To: Define an antiderivative in calculus

The relationship and the definition of derivatives and anti-derivatives is described in this video. First, consider a function F(x)=x^3-5x+2 and another with small 'f', f(x)=3x-5. f(x) here is the derivative of F(x). However, on the contrary, F(x) is said to be the anti-derivative of f(x). There is a catch though; even though F(x) has only one derivative in the form of f(x), f(x) here has more than one anti-derivative. This is because f(x)'s anti-derivatives are of the form F(x)=x^3-5x+c, whe...

Scrabble Challenge #12: Can You Unscramble the Derivative Words?

Last week's challenge brought up a good question (thanks Lisa) regarding the functionality of the Official Scrabble Players Dictionary, 4th Edition, both online and in print form. The word TACTICAL was the answer to the first puzzle in that challenge, but when you search for the word directly in the print version, it can't be found. Likewise, when you search the online dictionary on Hasbro's site, you won't find it either. Go ahead, try it. You won't find it looking for TACTICAL specifically.

How To: Make chlorine gas with pool chlorine and hydrochloric acid

Chlorine gas is a very useful oxidant, which was first introduced as a toxic weapon by the German Army. Even today, it's still used as a weapon, most recently in the Iraq War by insurgents. But chlorine gas has more useful (and less lethal) applications, and if you want to learn how to make some at home, NurdRage has the answers.

How To: Define an indefinite integral in calculus

In this video tutorial, viewers learn how to define an indefinite integral in calculus. Finding the anti-derivatives of a function is called anti-differentiation. The f(x) is the derivative of F(x), while F(x) is the anti-derivative of f(x). If F(x) is the anti-derivative of f(x), then F(x) + c are all anti-derivatives of f(x). This video is very descriptive and clearly explains all the functions of this mathematical function. This video will benefit those viewers who are students, and are in...

News: Bacteria Turned into Factories, Supplying Critical Enzymes to Make Cancer Drugs Cheaper & Save Endangered Yew Trees

Cytochrome P450 (P450s) are proteins found in nearly all living organisms, which play roles that range from producing essential compounds and hormones to metabolizing drugs and toxins. We use some of the compounds synthesized by P450 in plants as medical treatments, but the slow growth and limited supply of these plants have put the drugs' availability in jeopardy and jacked up prices.
