Derivative of force

  1. Nov 21, 2015 #1
    So I know that momentum is the time derivative of force, but what is the time derivative of force? That is, p=mv, f=ma, ?=mj (if j is jerk/jolt). Thanks!

    It doesn't have a name. It isn't often useful, so it hasn't been worth naming.

    Does it have any practical uses?

    I'm sure you meant to say "force is the time derivative of momentum"!

    Yes. It was a mistake.
