## Why is it impossible to find the slope of a tangent line?

The slope of the tangent to a given curve continuously varies. The slope of the tangents at nearby points to a curve are Not equal. Hence if you take any 2 points on the line & find the slope you won’t get right answer. In this case, you have to take derivative.

**How do you find the slope of a tangent line at a point?**

1) Find the first derivative of f(x). 2) Plug x value of the indicated point into f ‘(x) to find the slope at x. 3) Plug x value into f(x) to find the y coordinate of the tangent point. 4) Combine the slope from step 2 and point from step 3 using the point-slope formula to find the equation for the tangent line.

### How do you find the slope of a tangent Class 12?

The given curve is y =f(x) with point A (x1, y1). Therefore the slope of the tangent becomes (dy/dx)x = x1 ; y = y1. We can now replace “m” from the equation above to the (dy/dx)x = x1 ; y = y1 .

**What affects the slope of the LM curve?**

The slope of the LM curve depends upon the income elasticity and the interest elasticity of the demand for money. Income-elasticity measures the responsiveness of the demand for money to changes in income while interest elasticity measures the responsiveness of the demand for money to changes in the rate of interest.

#### What does the slope of the graph represent?

The slope of a position graph represents the velocity of the object. So the value of the slope at a particular time represents the velocity of the object at that instant.

**Is slope equal to tangent?**

Answer: The tangent of the angle changes with the slope. The tangent of the angle is equal to the slope of the line.

## How to find the slope of the tangent line at any point?

The slope of the tangent line to a curve at any point is simply the slope of the curve at that point. To find the slope of the function at any point, we take the derivative: Now we can plug in the x value of the given point,, which gives us the slope of the tangent line to the curve at that point:

**How do you find the point of tangency of a curve?**

The point where the curve and the tangent meet is called the point of tangency. We know that for a line. y = m x + c. y=mx+c y = mx +c its slope at any point is. m. m m. The same applies to a curve. When we say the slope of a curve, we mean the slope of tangent to the curve at a point.

### How to find the slope of the function at any point?

To find the slope of the function at any point, we take the derivative: Now we can plug in the x value of the given point, , which gives us the slope of the tangent line to the curve at that point: Calculate the slope of the line tangent to the curve at the point .

**How do you find the derivative of a tangent line?**

Calculate the derivative of by using the derivative rules. The derivative function determines the slope at any point of the original function. With the given point , . Substitute this value to the derivative function to determine the slope at that point. The slope of the tangent line that intersects point is .
