1. Hi All!

First post on this forum so sorry if I have placed this post in the wrong location! nice to meet you all anyhow.

I'm having a problem with a question on my practice papers,

Find the gradient of the curve y = sin 2 0(theta) when 0 (theta) = N/6 (N over 6)

Where would I start for this type of equation.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks very much

Differentiate and sub in the value, dy/dtheta gives the gradient as a function of theta :-) also, should that be NPI/6?
4. Thanks for your replies both

The question just has N/6, PI is not mentioned.

I cannot figure out what to do, Really lost on this one

Would you mind explaining it a bit more please?

Thanks again

This is a pretty standard sort of question to be honest.

What course are you doing? How much differentiation have you covered before? Are you familiar with the concept of finding the gradient of a curve at a point by differentiating a function?

Oh, and I think your letter 'N' is probably the Greek letter , i.e. pi.

Are you sure it's an N and not ? If it is an N, is this part of a larger question?
7. I do apologise, on looking closer it is \pi

OK, so you can you differentiate the function you've been given?
