It is a step function. One new part of that example is the notation (dfldt or f' instead of v). Please look also at the third figure. Especially it shows At and A f . At the start, A f / A t is 2. After the stop at t = 3, all t's go to the same f ( t ) = 6 . So Af = 0 and df /dt = 0. time distance u =df/dt=f' f'(3) not defined slope undefined slope 2 t 3 3 Fig. 1 The derivative is 2 then 0. It does not exist at t = 3. THE DERIVATIVE OF 111 Here is a completely different slope, for the "demand function" f ( t )= lit.

18 shows the result we want. On the right, f = sin t gives the height. On the left is the velocity v = cos t. That velocity is the slope of the f-curve. The height and velocity (red lines) are oscillating together, but they are out of phase-just as the position triangle and velocity triangle were at right angles. This is absolutely fantastic, that in calculus the two most famous functions of trigonometry form a pair: The slope of the sine curve is given by the cosine curve. When the distance is f (t) = sin t, the velocity is v(t) = cos t .

The numbers Af and At must approach zero together, not separately. Here their ratio is 2t At, the average speed. To repeat: Success came by writing out (t + At)2 and subtracting t2 and dividing by At. Then and only then can we approach At = 0. The limit is the derivative 2t. + There are several new things in formulas (1) and (2). Some are easy but important, others are more profound. The idea of a function we will come back to, and the definition of a limit. But the notations can be discussed right away.
