APPLICATIONS OF DIFFERENTIATION(2)
1. What is Higher Derivatives ?
In mathematics we use the higher derivatives in many applications . The higher derivatives are used in different fields . They are graphing , differentiation , linear equations , and partial differentiation . Higher derivatives are also used in limits . Higher derivatives are also used for finding the rate of change of acceleration of the vehicle . If we repeat the differentiation process to find the differential coefficient of the differential coefficient of y d2y d dy ( )= with respect to x and is written dx dx dx 2 d2y dy 2 3 ?

3. Stationary Points
Stationary points

Turning points

Points of inflexion

Maximum Point

Minimum Point

A turning point is a stationary point which is either a maximum or minimum point . Not all stationary point are turning point .
Consider the graph below in Fig 13.2 . A point on a curve , y = f(x) is a stationary point if
dy = 0 at that point . They include turning points and dx

stationary points of inflexion . On the graph , points A , B and C are stationary points . ? Point A is called minimum point because y has a minimum value at A as compared to the neighboring points around A . ? Point A and Point C are called local minimums . ? Point B is only local maximum and does not necessarily represent the maximum value of the whole curve. ? In Fig 13.3 and Fig 13.4 , the point dy dy where = 0 and does not dx dx change sign in the neighborhood of the point of inflexion.
