Homework Help: Derivatives and Vectors

  1. Jan 29, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    What does \mathbf{\frac{d\vec{x}}{dt}} mean? If my latex doesn't work that should be

    dx/dt where x is a vector?


    I think it has something to do with derivatives if so how do I use it?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    This is the first derivative with respect to time of the displacement vector ... aka Velocity.
