Applications of Derivatives

  1. Nov 9, 2004 #1
    What is the name of the seventh derivative of a position function? I know the first derivative is velocity and the second is acceleration, and the third is jerk. But what is the realworld use of a 7th derivative??

    I don't believe it has any special name.
