Solution: Ex 6: Differentiate the following functions with respect to x:

Ex 6.(i): 10x ⋅ x10

Solution: The derivative of 10x ⋅ x10 is equal to

d/dx(10x ⋅ x10) = 10x d/dx(x10) + x10 d/dx(10x) , by the product rule of derivatives.

= 10x ⋅ 10x10-1 + x10⋅10x loge10

= 10x+1 ⋅x9 + x10⋅10x loge10

Ex 6.(ii): x3log x

Solution:

d/dx(x3 log x) = x3 d/dx(log x) + log x d/dx(x3

= x3 ⋅ 1/x + log x ⋅ 3x2

= x2 + 3x2 log x

= x2 (1 + 3log x)

Ex 6.(iii): etan x

Solution: The derivative of etan x is equal to

d/dx(etan x) = ex d/dx(tan x) + tan x d/dx(ex) , by the product rule of derivatives.

= ex ⋅ sec2x + tan x ⋅ ex

= e(tan x + sec2x)

Ex 6.(iv): √x log √x

Solution:

d/dx(√x log √x) = √x ⋅ d/dx(log √x) + log √x ⋅ d/dx(√x)

$=\sqrt{x} \frac{1}{\sqrt{x}} \frac{d}{dx}(\sqrt{x})$ $+\log \sqrt{x} \frac{d}{dx}(\sqrt{x})$

$=\frac{d}{dx}(x^{1/2}) (1+\log \sqrt{x})$

$=\frac{1}{2} x^{1/2-1} (1+\log \sqrt{x})$

$=\frac{1}{2\sqrt{x}} (1+\log \sqrt{x})$

Ex 6.(v): (x2+1)ex

Solution:

d/dx{(x2+1)ex} = (x2+1) d/dx(ex) + ex d/dx(x2+1)

= (x2+1) ex + ex (2x+0)

= ex (x2+1+2x)

= ex (x+1)2

Ex 6.(vi): ex sec x

Solution:

The derivative of ex sec x is equal to

d/dx(ex sec x) = ex d/dx(sec x) + sec x d/dx(ex) , by the product rule of derivatives.

= ex ⋅ sec x tan x + sec x ⋅ ex

= esec x (tan x + 1)

Ex 6.(vii): (2x-5)(x2+2)

Solution:

Ex 6.(viii): cosec x ⋅ cot x

Solution:

The derivative of cosec x ⋅ cot x is equal to

d/dx(cosec x ⋅ cot x) = cosec x d/dx(cot x) + cot x d/dx(cosec x) , by the product rule of derivatives.

= cosec x ⋅ (-cosec2 x) + cot x ⋅ (-cosec x cot x)

= -cosec x (cosec2x+cot2x)

Ex 6.(ix): (sin x +sec x)(cos x +cosec x)

Solution:

The derivative of (sin x +sec x)(cos x +cosec x) is equal to

d/dx[(sin x +sec x)(cos x +cosec x)]

= (sin x +sec x) d/dx(cos x +cosec x) + (cos x +cosec x) d/dx(sin x +sec x)

= (sin x +sec x) (-sin x -cosec x cot x) + (cos x +cosec x) (cos x +sec x tan x)

Ex 6.(x): sec3 x

Solution: The derivative of sec3x is equal to

d/dx(sec3 x) = 3 sec2 x ⋅ d/dx(sec x)

= 3 sec2 x ⋅ sec x tan x

Ex 6.(xi): √xesec x

Solution:

Ex 6.(xii): xtan x log x

Solution:

Ex 6.(xiii): x cos x + 2x sec x

Solution:

The derivative of x cos x + 2x sec x is equal to

d/dx(x cos x + 2x sec x) = d/dx(x cos x) + d/dx(2x sec x)

= x d/dx(cos x) + cos x d/dx(x) + 2x d/dx(sec x) + sec x d/dx(2x)

= x sin x + cos x ⋅ 1 + 2x sec x tan x + sec x ⋅ 2xloge2

= x sin x + cos x + 2x sec x (tan x + loge2)  Keywords: SN Dey Class 11 Differentiation Solutions | Solution of Class 11 Derivative | SN Dey Class 11 Solutions | SN Dey Class 11 Derivative Solutions Short Answer Type Questions | WB Board Class 11 Derivative Solution | SN Dey Class 11 Math Chapter Derivative Solution | Differentiation Short Answer Type Questions Answers | sn dey class 11 derivatives solutions
