How do you solve complex partial differentiation?
Partial Differentiation is one of those topics that tends to fall in the realm of uncertainty.
In some cases, these problems are easy to carry out.
In other, more complex cases, we don’t even know where to start.
‘Tis the reality of the FE Exam.
Though we often feel prepared enough to see anything, the NCEES always has its ways of throwing us off our game.
In this video, we dive into a FE Exam Practice Problem, this time within the subject of MATHEMATICS, specifically revolving around PARTIAL DIFFERENTIATION of a complex function.
What is PARTIAL DIFFERENTIATION?
In MATHEMATICS, the PARTIAL DERIVATIVE of a function of several variables is its derivative with respect to one of those variables, with the others held constant.
This is opposed to the total DERIVATIVE, in which all variables are allowed to vary.
The reason for a new type of derivative is that when the input of a function is made up of multiple variables, we want to see how the function changes as we let just one of those variables change while holding all the others constant.
So how can you go about carrying our partial differentiation of a complex function?
Check out the video and see how we can go about solving this type of problem in the most efficient manner.
