hi, is it possible to derive a fraction? for example: (s+2)/(s^2+7)

thanks.

Accepted answer

You can use the symbolic toolbox. If you need to do it more "by hand" then use the chain rule.

You can also use an approximate derivation of your function:

s=0:0.01:100; y=(s+2)./(s.^2+7); dy=diff(y)./diff(s) plot(s(1:end-1),dy)
