Find the equation of the normal to the curve y=1+sinx/cosx at x= pi/4.

if the given curve is ; i.e.

the slope of the tangent

at x= , ..........(2)

.......(3)

the slope of the normal at x= is

therefore the equation which passes through the point and having slope -1/2 is given as:

which is the required equation of the normal.

hope this helps you.
