Differentiation Rules for Exponential Functions

In this tutorial we discuss basic differentiation formulas of exponential functions.

1. \frac{d}{{dx}}{a^x} = \frac{1}{{x\ln a}},\,\,\,a  > 0,\,\,\,a \ne 1

2. \frac{d}{{dx}}{e^x} = {e^x}

Now general exponential formulae when any function, the following formulas are of the form 

 1. \frac{d}{{dx}}{a^{f\left( x \right)}} =  \frac{1}{{f\left( x \right)\ln a}}\frac{d}{{dx}}f\left( x \right),\,\,\,a >  0,\,\,\,a \ne 1

2. \frac{d}{{dx}}{e^{f\left( x \right)}} = {e^{f\left(  x \right)}}\frac{d}{{dx}}f\left( x \right)
