nth time derivative of sin(x)

Pretty much in the title but.. well im trying to find a formula for the nth time derivative of sin(x) (where the x is a position just so you know its not me wanting to find the nth derivative of sin(t) hehe).

im wondering if there is another route to finding a formula other than taking like hundreds of product rule derivatives (or using thhe leibniz formula for product rules which isn't getting me very far since its like an infinite substitution thing (if u want me to explain what i mean ask xD)) and looking for tough to spot pattern, or if its even really possible to find a formula

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

  • Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
  • Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
  • Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
  • Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

I don't think I understand your question but do you mean this?

f(x)=sinnxf(x)=nsinn1xcosx\begin{array}{l} f(x) = {\sin ^n}x\\ f'(x) = n{\sin ^{n - 1}}x\cos x \end{array}

no, i mean if you take the derivative with respect to t of sin(x) n times, what would u get so for example, if you did it once, you'd get cos(x) dx/dt.. if you did another derivative, you'd get cos(x)d2x/dt2-sin(x) dx/dt... etc, im wondering if theres some way to figure out a formula for that

Let y = sin(x) Differentiating wrt x, y'= cos(x) = sin(π/2 +x) Similarly yn or nth derivative of sinx wrt x is sin(nπ/2 + x)
