## Implicit Differentiation

In Calculus, a function can be in implicit form at times and it signifies that the function is expressed in both x and y terms. The implicit form of a parabola equation for example is \( y2 = – 4ax\). The process of determining the derivative of these implicit functions is called implicit differentiation.

## Steps

- Firstly, you need to differentiate the function with respect to x.
- While differentiating y terms you get dy/dx.
- Then, collect all dy/dx on one side.
- Lastly, solve for dy/dx.

## Example Problems

Question 1: Find y′ for xy=1?

Solution: Given implicit function => xy =1

Differentiating with respect to x.

=> d(xy)/dx = d(1)/dx

Using product rule, we differentiate the first term

=> 1.y + x.(dy/dx) = 0

We know that y′ = dy/dx

y + xy′ = 0

=> y′ = -y/x

From the equation we know that y = 1/x, substituting this in the implicit differential, we get

**=> y′ = 1/x ^{2}**
