Tangent modulus of the Mooney-Rivlin based Neo-hookean - Could you check my derivation??



I study solid mechanics at a graduate school.


I tried to derive tangent modulus of the Mooney-Rivlin based Neo-Hookean material.


There might be no error in my derivation, but answer is wrong with referred right answer.


So, could you check my derivation?


I attached my derivation as a figure.




Thanks in advance.
