Although my notation is likely incorrect,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Momentum =

[tex] m\frac{{dx}}{{dt}} = m \cdot v [/tex]

Force =

[tex] m\frac{{d^2 x}}{{dt^2 }} = m\frac{{dv}}{{dt}} = m \cdot a [/tex]

Then,

[tex] m\frac{{d^3 x}}{{dt^3 }} = m\frac{{d^2 v}}{{dt^2 }} = m\frac{{da}}{{dt}} [/tex]

But what would/do you call the [tex] m\frac{{da}}{{dt}} [/tex] ?
