# Intuitive Approach to the derivative of y=sin(x)

## Key Questions

• Well, the derivative of a function is defined using a limit, so if you are finding derivatives, then you are indeed using limits directly or indirectly; however. in most calculus classes, the derivatives of trigonometric functions are remembered as formulas once derived. So, we have the formula

$\left(\sin x\right) ' = \cos x$.
