To differentiate ( f(x) = \csc(\sqrt{e^x}) ) using the chain rule, follow these steps:

- Identify the outer function as ( \csc(u) ) and the inner function as ( \sqrt{e^x} ).
- Compute the derivative of the outer function with respect to its argument: ( \frac{d}{du} \csc(u) = -\csc(u) \cot(u) ).
- Compute the derivative of the inner function with respect to ( x ): ( \frac{d}{dx} \sqrt{e^x} = \frac{1}{2\sqrt{e^x}} e^x = \frac{1}{2\sqrt{e^x}} \cdot e^x ).
- Apply the chain rule: ( \frac{d}{dx} \csc(\sqrt{e^x}) = -\csc(\sqrt{e^x}) \cot(\sqrt{e^x}) \cdot \frac{1}{2\sqrt{e^x}} \cdot e^x ).

Thus, the derivative of ( f(x) = \csc(\sqrt{e^x}) ) with respect to ( x ) using the chain rule is ( -\frac{e^x}{2\sqrt{e^x}} \csc(\sqrt{e^x}) \cot(\sqrt{e^x}) ).

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
