\end{align*} \]. Since the first limit is equal to zero, we need only show that the second limit is finite: \[ \begin{align*} \lim_{(x,y)→(x_0,y_0)} \dfrac{\sqrt{ (x−x_0)^2+(y−y_0)^2 }} {t−t+0} =\lim_{(x,y)→(x_0,y_0)} \sqrt{ \dfrac { (x−x_0)^2+(y−y_0)^2 } {(t−t_0)^2} } \\[4pt] =\lim_{(x,y)→(x_0,y_0)}\sqrt{ \left(\dfrac{x−x_0}{t−t_0}\right)^2+\left(\dfrac{y−y_0}{t−t_0}\right)^2} \\[4pt] =\sqrt{ \left[\lim_{(x,y)→(x_0,y_0)} \left(\dfrac{x−x_0}{t−t_0}\right)\right]^2+\left[\lim_{(x,y)→(x_0,y_0)} \left(\dfrac{y−y_0}{t−t_0}\right)\right]^2}. \nonumber\]. The inner function is the one inside the parentheses: x 2-3.The outer function is √(x). For more information contact us at info@libretexts.org or check out our status page at https://status.libretexts.org. \end{align*}\], The formulas for \(\displaystyle ∂w/∂u\) and \(\displaystyle ∂w/∂v\) are, \[\begin{align*} \dfrac{∂w}{∂u} =\dfrac{∂w}{∂x}⋅\dfrac{∂x}{∂u}+\dfrac{∂w}{∂y}⋅\dfrac{∂y}{∂u}+\dfrac{∂w}{∂z}⋅\dfrac{∂z}{∂u} \\[4pt] \dfrac{∂w}{∂v} =\dfrac{∂w}{∂x}⋅\dfrac{∂x}{∂v}+\dfrac{∂w}{∂y}⋅\dfrac{∂y}{∂v}+\dfrac{∂w}{∂z}⋅\dfrac{∂z}{∂v}. The reason is that, in Note, \(\displaystyle z\) is ultimately a function of \(\displaystyle t\) alone, whereas in Note, \(\displaystyle z\) is a function of both \(\displaystyle u\) and \(\displaystyle v\). \end{align*}\]. This multivariable calculus video explains how to evaluate partial derivatives using the chain rule and the help of a tree diagram. » Clip: Total Differentials and Chain Rule (00:21:00) From Lecture 11 of 18.02 Multivariable Calculus, Fall 2007 Flash and JavaScript are required for this feature. In Note, \(\displaystyle z=f(x,y)\) is a function of \(\displaystyle x\) and \(\displaystyle y\), and both \(\displaystyle x=g(u,v)\) and \(\displaystyle y=h(u,v)\) are functions of the independent variables \(\displaystyle u\) and \(\displaystyle v\). , here's what the multivariable chain rule says: d d t f ( x ( t), y ( t)) ⏟ Derivative of composition function = ∂ f ∂ x d x d t + ∂ f ∂ y d y d t. Have questions or comments? \end{align*}\], Next, we substitute \(\displaystyle x(u,v)=3u+2v\) and \(\displaystyle y(u,v)=4u−v:\), \[\begin{align*} \dfrac{∂z}{∂u} =10x+2y \\[4pt] =10(3u+2v)+2(4u−v) \\[4pt] =38u+18v. g (t) = f (x (t), y (t)), how would I find g ″ (t) in terms of the first and second order partial derivatives of x, y, f? (You can think of this as the mountain climbing example where f(x,y) isheight of mountain at point (x,y) and the path g(t) givesyour position at time t.)Let h(t) be the composition of f with g (which would giveyour height at time t):h(t)=(f∘g)(t)=f(g(t)).Calculate the derivative h′(t)=dhdt(t)(i.e.,the change in height) via the chain rule. Let’s see … We also acknowledge previous National Science Foundation support under grant numbers 1246120, 1525057, and 1413739. To find the equation of the tangent line, we use the point-slope form (Figure \(\PageIndex{5}\)): \[\begin{align*} y−y_0 =m(x−x_0)\\[4pt]y−1 =\dfrac{7}{4}(x−2) \\[4pt] y =\dfrac{7}{4}x−\dfrac{7}{2}+1\\[4pt] y =\dfrac{7}{4}x−\dfrac{5}{2}.\end{align*}\]. Then \(\displaystyle f(x,y)=x^2+3y^2+4y−4.\) The ellipse \(\displaystyle x^2+3y^2+4y−4=0\) can then be described by the equation \(\displaystyle f(x,y)=0\). Solution: We will ﬁrst ﬁnd ∂2z ∂y2. Now suppose that \(\displaystyle f\) is a function of two variables and \(\displaystyle g\) is a function of one variable. We then subtract \(\displaystyle z_0=f(x_0,y_0)\) from both sides of this equation: \[ \begin{align*} z(t)−z(t_0) =f(x(t),y(t))−f(x(t_0),y(t_0)) \\[4pt] =f_x(x_0,y_0)(x(t)−x(t_0))+f_y(x_0,y_0)(y(t)−y(t_0))+E(x(t),y(t)). In the next example we calculate the derivative of a function of three independent variables in which each of the three variables is dependent on two other variables. The inner function is the one inside the parentheses: x 2-3.The outer function is √(x). This derivative can also be calculated by first substituting \(\displaystyle x(t)\) and \(\displaystyle y(t)\) into \(\displaystyle f(x,y),\) then differentiating with respect to \(\displaystyle t\): \[\displaystyle z=f(x,y)=f(x(t),y(t))=4(x(t))^2+3(y(t))^2=4\sin^2 t+3\cos^2 t. \nonumber\], \[\displaystyle \dfrac{dz}{dt}=2(4\sin t)(\cos t)+2(3\cos t)(−\sin t)=8\sin t\cos t−6\sin t\cos t=2\sin t\cos t, \nonumber\].

Now, we substitute each of them into the first formula to calculate \(\displaystyle ∂w/∂u\): \[\begin{align*} \dfrac{∂w}{∂u} =\dfrac{∂w}{∂x}⋅\dfrac{∂x}{∂u}+\dfrac{∂w}{∂y}⋅\dfrac{∂y}{∂u}+\dfrac{∂w}{∂z}⋅\dfrac{∂z}{∂u} \\[4pt] =(6x−2y)e^u\sin v−2xe^u\cos v+8ze^u, \end{align*}\]. Suppose \(\displaystyle x=g(u,v)\) and \(\displaystyle y=h(u,v)\) are differentiable functions of \(\displaystyle u\) and \(\displaystyle v\), and \(\displaystyle z=f(x,y)\) is a differentiable function of \(\displaystyle x\) and \(\displaystyle y\).
