Re: Deriviation d/dt(x(t))


Dt[x^2 + y^2 == r^2, t, Constants -> {r}]

2*x*Dt[x, t, Constants -> {r}] + 
   2*y*Dt[y, t, Constants -> {r}] == 0

or

Dt[x^2 + y^2 == r^2, t] /. Dt[r, t] -> 0

2*x*Dt[x, t] + 2*y*Dt[y, t] == 0

or

D[x[t]^2 + y[t]^2 == r^2, t]

2*x[t]*Derivative[1][x][t] + 2*y[t]*Derivative[1][y][t] == 0
