1. ## Derivative/limit

I am having trouble with this problem. It asks to: Prove that the function f(x)= x^2*sin(1/x) if x doesn't equal zero and 0 if x=0 is differentiable at x=0 and to compute the derivative at zero.

This is what i've done so far:

Noted f(0)=0 so its defined at 0.
Proved that the limit of f(x) as x->0 is 0 through the squeeze theorem.
-Through this f(x) is continuous*

I think i need to prove that the limit of the derivative from the left and right as x->0 = some number correct? or am i wrong? this way it would prove no sharp turns and the derivative at 0? Can i get some hints or help? Thank you!

2. Hello,

For f to be differentiable at x=0, prove that $\displaystyle \lim_{h \to 0} ~ \frac{f(h)-f(0)}{h}=\lim_{h \to 0} ~ \frac{h^2 \sin(\tfrac 1h)-0}{h}=\lim_{h \to 0} ~ h \sin(\tfrac 1h)$ is finite

3. how do i compute the limit at 0 though?

4. Like you said, squeeze theorem

Start with: $\displaystyle -1 \leq \sin \left(\frac{1}{h}\right) \leq 1$

5. yes, but if h is multiplied through and its value is 0 that means the derivative at 0 is 0 and it isn't....:/

6. Why do you think it isn't?

7. uhhhhhh i was looking at the wrong graph. I did most of that and the graph didn't look the same so i assumed i was wrong, but i just made a typo in my graph. Thanks hahah
