The first term requies the product rule!

The RHS can be written:

And hence requires the chain rule:

The first term also requires the chain rule:

Now all you have to do is carry out these relatively simple differentiations, and then change the equation so that you get . - Jan 23rd 2009, 09:07 AMEmmeyh15@hotmail.com
im confused on how to apply the chain rule to that? i got the poblem right so far but i'm stuck at that point
