               c=\frac{3 \pi}{4} \in(0, \pi)


               f(0)=f(\pi), so there existsc \in(0, \pi)


               f(x)=e^{x} \sin x on [0, \pi]


We have

f(x)=e^{x} \sin x on [0, \pi]

We know that exponential and sine functions are continuous and differentiable on R.

Let’s find the values of the function at an extreme

ù\\ \Rightarrow \quad f(0)=e^{0} \sin (0)\\\\ \Rightarrow \quad f(0)=1 \times 0\\\\ \therefore \quad f(0)=0\\\\ \Rightarrow \quad f(\pi)=e^{\pi} \sin (\pi)\\\\ \Rightarrow \quad f(\pi)=e^{\pi} \times 0\\\\ \therefore \quad f(\pi)=0

We havef(0)=f(\pi) , so there exists c \in(0, \pi) , such thatf^{\prime}(c)=0

Let’s find the derivative of f(x) 

\\ \Rightarrow f^{\prime}(x)=\frac{d\left(e^{x} \sin x\right)}{d x}\) \\\\ \Rightarrow \quad f^{\prime}(x)=\sin x \frac{d\left(e^{x}\right)}{d x}+\frac{e^{x} d(\sin x)}{d x} \\\\ \Rightarrow \quad f^{\prime}(x)=e^{x}(\sin x+\cos x)

We havef'(c) = 0

\begin{array}{l} \Rightarrow \quad e^{c}(\sin c+\cos c)=0 \\\\ \Rightarrow \quad \sin c+\cos c=0 \\\\ \Rightarrow \quad \frac{1}{\sqrt{2}} \sin c+\frac{1}{\sqrt{2}} \cos c=0 \\\\ \Rightarrow \quad \sin \left(\frac{\pi}{4}\right) \sin c+\cos \left(\frac{\pi}{4}\right) \cos c=0 \\\\ \Rightarrow \quad \cos \left(c-\frac{\pi}{4}\right)=0 \\\\ \Rightarrow \quad c-\frac{\pi}{4}=\cos ^{-1}(0) \\\\ \Rightarrow \quad c-\frac{\pi}{4}=\frac{\pi}{2} \\\\\left [ \because \cos ^{-1} (0)= \frac{\pi}{2} \right ] \\\\ \Rightarrow \quad c=\frac{3 \pi}{4} \in(0, \pi) \end{array}

\therefore          Rolle’s Theorem is verified.
