It is uniformly continous:

By the mean value theorem we have where . Taking the supremum over all and noting that we have that for all and so . Now taking in the definition of unif. cont. the result follows.

Actually you can prove that for a continously diff. function it's equivalent:

1) is bounded

2) There exists such that
