Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it says: If H(theta)= thetas(sin theta), find H'(theta) and H"(theta)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If the question is H(Ø) = Øsin(Ø) and you're differentiating with respect to Ø, then you'd have to use the Product Rule here since you have one variable quantity, Ø, being multiplied by another variable quantity, sin(Ø). Thus... H(Ø) = Øsin(Ø) H'(Ø) = (1)(sin(Ø)) + (Ø)(cos(Ø)) = sin(Ø) + Øcos(Ø) H''(Ø) = cos(Ø) + (1)(cos(Ø)) + (Ø)(–sin(Ø)) = 2cos(Ø) – Øsin(Ø) Unless the question also gave you an initial condition or a value for Ø to plug in to the original function and/or its derivatives, I'm not very sure where the value of 1 came into the picture.
