    Find the second differential coefficient with respect to Ѳ

    Find the second differential coefficient with respect to Ѳ:

    (2)ln(2)Ѳ


    I would appreciate help as quickly as possible with this as my college deadline is tomorrow.

    Thank you in advance

    Differential coefficient? Do you mean derivative?

    The question above is what it says on the sheet I was given, but yes I think it might mean derivative...

    2ln(2) is a constant, so you just have a linear function in theta. What do you get when you differentiate a linear function twice?

    Re: Find the second differential coefficient with respect to Ѳ

    When you differentiate a linear function twice you get:

    f'(x) = n * x^n-1

    f''(x) = n * n-1 * x^n-2

    For your problem

    f(Ѳ) = 2ln(2)Ѳ

    f'(Ѳ) = 2ln(2)

    f''(Ѳ) = 0
