In one my classes my lecturer showed us the following derivation of acceleration as a function of displacement(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

dv/dt = v(dv/dx) = d(.5v^2)/dx

I understand how to get from the first to the second part. But I'm not sure how he got from the second part to the third. Its almost like he integrated v dv on the right hand side?

Any help would be appreciated.
