Partial derivatives are so called because they're the derivatives of multivariable functions. When a function is defined in terms of two or more variables, the function's derivative is actually a collection of partial derivative equations.
When a function is defined in terms of two or more variables, the function's derivative is actually a collection of partial derivative equations. The course is divided into 12 sections: Limits and continuity Partial derivatives Tangent planes and normal lines Linear approximation and linearization Differentials Chain rule Implicit differentiation Directional derivatives Gradient vectors Optimization Applied optimization Lagrange multipliers
Differential equations are those types of equations that have some derivatives of certain functions. The derivatives can either be ordinary derivatives or partial derivatives. If there are only ordinary derivatives in the equation then, the equation is defined as the ordinary type of differential equation and if the equation has all its terms as partial derivative then, such type of equation is called as partial differential equation.
In mathematics, a partial derivative of a function of several variables is its derivative with respect to one of those variables, with the others held constant (as opposed to the total derivative, in which all variables are allowed to vary). Partial derivatives are used in vector calculus and differential geometry. #Glogster #PartialDerivatives
