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?

Thanks,

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

$$\mathbf{\frac{d\vec{x}}{dt}}$$

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