Derivative

Idea

Derivative can be written as a quotient of two differentials:

(1)
\begin{align} f'(x)=\frac{df(x)}{dx} \end{align}

where differentials can be taken with respect to any variable.

Where it can be used?

  • Slope of tangent line
  • velocity, acceleration, etc. computation
  • Differential equations
