The explicit expression for is found resolving the algebraic equation... (1) ... and we obtain... (2) Because is we have to choose in (2) the sign '-', so that is... (3) Kind regards
You don't need to solve for y, use "implicit differentiation". Since , . Set y= 1 and solve for y'. Do it again: . Set y= 1, and y' equal to the value you just found, and solve for y''.
