Answer to Question #16021 in Real Analysis for Ciaran Duffy

Question #16021
Let f(x) = |x|^1/2. Is f differentiable at c = 0?
Expert's answer
Notice that for x>0,
f'(x) = 1/2 * x^(1/2-1) = 1/2 * x^(-1/2) = 1/( 2
x^(1/2) ).

Hence when x->0
lim_{x->0} f'(x) = +

Therefore f is not differentiable at c=0 since f' in unbounded
at that point.
