Some Applications of the Chain Rule

Read this section to learn how to apply the Chain Rule. Work through practice problems 1-8.


The Chain Rule will help us determine the derivatives of logarithms and exponential functions \mathrm{a}^{x} . We will also use it to answer some applied questions and to find slopes of graphs given by parametric equations.
