In Graad 10 het ons die idee van gemiddelde gradiënt ondersoek and gesien dat die gradiënt van sommige funksies verskillend is by verskillende intervalle. In Graad 11 kyk ons verder na die idee van gemiddelde gradiënt, en stel die idee van 'n gradiënt van 'n kurwe by 'n punt bekend.

Gemiddelde gradiënt

Ons het gesien dat die gemiddelde gradiënt tussen twee punte op 'n kurwe die gradiënt is van die reguitlyn wat deur twee punte gaan.

The gemiddelde gradiënt tussen twee punte op 'n kurwe is die gradiënt van die reguitlyn wat deur die twee punte gaan.

Wat gebeur met die gradiënt as ons die posisie van een punt vasstel en die tweede punt nader aan die vaste punt beweeg?

Ondersoek: gradiënt by 'n enkele punt op 'n kurwe

Die kurwe gewys is gedefineër deur y = - 2 x 2 - 5 . Punt B is vasgestel by koördinate (0, -5). Die posisie van punt A wissel. Voltooi die tabel hieronder deur die y -koördinate van punt A te bereken vir die gegewe x -koördinate. Bereken dan die gemiddelde gradiënt tussen punte A en B.

x A y A gemiddelde gradiënt

Wat gebeur met die gemiddelde gradiënt soos A in die rigting van B beweeg? Wat gebreur met die gemiddelde gradieënt soos A wegbeweeg van B?Wat is die gemiddelde gradiënt wanneer A oorvleuel met B?

In [link] verander die gradiënt van die reguitlyn wat deur punte A en C gaan soos A nader beweeg aan C. By die punt wat A en C oorvleuel gaan die reguitlyn slegs deur een punt op die kurwe. So 'n lyn is bekend as 'n raaklyn aan die kurwe.

Die gradiënt van die reguitlyn tussen A en C verander soos die punt A between langs die kurwe na C toe. Daar kom 'n punt wat A en C oorvleuel (soos gewys in (c)). By daardie punt is die lyn 'n raaklyn aan die kurwe.

Ons stel dan die idee bekend van 'n gradiënt by 'n enkele punt op 'n kurwe. Die gradiënt by 'n punt op 'n kurwe is eenvoudig die gradiënt van die raaklyn aan die kurwe by die gegewe punt.

Kry die gemiddelde gradiënt tussen twee punte P ( a ; g ( a ) ) en Q ( a + h ; g ( a + h ) ) op die kurwe g ( x ) = x 2 . Kry dan die gemiddelde gradiënt tussen P ( 2 ; g ( 2 ) ) en Q ( 4 ; g ( 4 ) ) . Laastens, verduidelik wat gebeur met die gemiddelde gradiënt soos P nader beweeg aan Q.

  1. x 1 = a
    x 2 = a + h
  2. Deur die funksie g ( x ) = x 2 te gebruik, kry ons:

    y 1 = g ( a ) = a 2
    y 2 = g ( a + h ) = ( a + h ) 2 = a 2 + 2 a h + h 2
  3. y 2 - y 1 x 2 - x 1 = ( a 2 + 2 a h + h 2 ) - ( a 2 ) ( a + h ) - ( a ) = a 2 + 2 a h + h 2 - a 2 a + h - a = 2 a h + h 2 h = h ( 2 a + h ) h = 2 a + h

    Die gemiddelde gradiënt tussen P ( a ; g ( a ) ) en Q ( a + h ; g ( a + h ) ) op die kurwe g ( x ) = x 2 is 2 a + h .

  4. Ons kan die resultaat in [link] gebruik, maar ons sal moet bepaal wat a en h is. Ons doen dit deur te kyk na die definisies van P en Q. Die x -koërdinaat van P is a en die x -koördinaat van Q is a + h . Daarom as ons aanneem dat a = 2 en a + h = 4 , dan is h = 2 .

    Dan is die gemiddelde gradiënt

    2 a + h = 2 ( 2 ) + ( 2 ) = 6
  5. soos punt P nader beweeg aan punt Q, word h kleiner. Dit beteken dat die gemiddelde gradiënt ook kleiner word. As die punt Q oorvleuel met die punt P, is h = 0 en die gemiddelde gradiënt word gegee deur 2 a .

Ons sien nou dat ons die vergelyking kan skryf om die gemiddelde gradiënt op 'n effens anderse manier te bereken. As ons 'n kurwe het gedefineer deur f ( x ) , dan vir twee punte P en Q met P ( a ; f ( a ) ) en Q ( a + h ; f ( a + h ) ) , word die gemiddelde gradiënt tussen P en Q gegee deur f ( x ) :

y 2 - y 1 x 2 - x 1 = f ( a + h ) - f ( a ) ( a + h ) - ( a ) = f ( a + h ) - f ( a ) h

Hierdie resultaat is belangrik om die gradiënt te bereken by 'n punt op 'n kurwe en dit sal in groter detail ondersoek word in Graad 12.


    1. Bepaal die gemiddelde gradiënt van die kurwe f ( x ) = x ( x + 3 ) tussen x =  – 5 en x =  – 3 .
    2. Sê nou wat jy kan aflei oor die funksie f tussen x =  – 5 en x =  – 3 .
  1. A(1;3) is 'n punt op f ( x ) = 3 x 2 .
    1. Bepaal die gradiënt van die kurwe by punt A.
    2. Bepaal nou die vergelyking van die raaklyn by A.
  2. Given: f ( x ) = 2 x 2 .
    1. Bepaal die gemiddelde gradiënt tussen x = - 2 en x = 1 .
    2. Bepaal die gradiënt van die kurwe van f waar x = 2 .

Jeffrey Reply
sure. what is your question?
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
I got X =-6
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?

or infinite solutions?
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
Prasenjit Reply
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.
