The correct answer is u_{xx }= u_{t = [}exp(-x^{2}/4t)/4sq. root pi *t^{3/2}] * (-1 + x^{2}/2t). Basically something is going wrong within the brackets of your answer. Check those.
If you want to check your intermediate result, I got the same answer as mrmaaza123 for and . - Hollywood
the two answers above are correct if you are looking for some help on it.. wolfram math have a nice applet to get partial derivatives and also shows the workings.
Can anyone show me the steps in solving ? I have now - thanks to you all!
For . Use the product rule to get: then factor out an and then your left with the correct Hope this helps. p.s in the first product dont forget that
