#### Directional derivative equation

How do you find the directional derivative? To find the directional derivative in the direction of the vector (1,2), we need to find a unit vector in the direction of the vector (1,2). We simply divide by the magnitude of (1,2). u=(1,2)∥(1,2)∥=(1,2)√12+22=(1,2)√5=(1/√5,2/√5). What is directional derivative of a function? In mathematics, the directional derivative of […]
