Derivatives measure the rate of change along a curve with respect to a given real or complex variable. Wolfram|Alpha is a great resource for determining the differentiability of a function, as well as calculating the derivatives of trigonometric, logarithmic, exponential, polynomial and many other types of mathematical expressions. Differentiation has many applications within physics, trigonometry, analysis, optimization and other fields.
Differentiate an expression with respect to a given variable.
Differentiate functions implicitly defined by equations.
