It's been a while since I've taken calculus. I was going through the derivation of the work-energy theorem and came across this: dv/dt = (dv/dx)(dx/dt) which is supposed to be a result of the chain rule. Anyone care to explain and please simplify it as much as possible.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thanks!
