# Partial Derivative Calculator

## Calculate partial derivatives step by step

This online calculator will calculate the partial derivative of the function, with steps shown. You can specify any order of integration.

Enter a function:

Enter the order of integration:

Hint: type x^2,y to calculate (partial^3 f)/(partial x^2 partial y), or enter x,y^2,x to find (partial^4 f)/(partial x partial y^2 partial x).

If the calculator did not compute something or you have identified an error, or you have a suggestion/feedback, please write it in the comments below.

### Solution

Your input: find $\frac{\partial}{\partial y}\left(81 x^{2} + y^{2}\right)$

The derivative of a sum/difference is the sum/difference of derivatives:

$$\color{red}{\frac{\partial}{\partial y}\left(81 x^{2} + y^{2}\right)}=\color{red}{\left(\frac{\partial}{\partial y}\left(81 x^{2}\right) + \frac{\partial}{\partial y}\left(y^{2}\right)\right)}$$

The derivative of a constant is 0:

$$\color{red}{\frac{\partial}{\partial y}\left(81 x^{2}\right)} + \frac{\partial}{\partial y}\left(y^{2}\right)=\color{red}{\left(0\right)} + \frac{\partial}{\partial y}\left(y^{2}\right)$$

Apply the power rule $\frac{\partial}{\partial y} \left(y^{n} \right)=n\cdot y^{-1+n}$ with $n=2$:

$$\color{red}{\frac{\partial}{\partial y}\left(y^{2}\right)}=\color{red}{\left(2 y^{-1 + 2}\right)}=2 y$$

Thus, $\frac{\partial}{\partial y}\left(81 x^{2} + y^{2}\right)=2 y$

Answer: $\frac{\partial}{\partial y}\left(81 x^{2} + y^{2}\right)=2 y$
