Derivatives of Exponential Functions - Concept

Concept Concept (1)

The derivative of an exponential function can be derived using the definition of the derivative. Derivatives of exponential functions involve the natural logarithm function, which itself is an important limit in Calculus, as well as the initial exponential function. The derivative is the natural logarithm of the base times the original function.
