Deriving of the differential d(1/2v^2)/dx

  1. May 15, 2010 #1
    Hi, I was wondering if someone could show me how this was derived from dv/dt? I was trying to look in my notes but I think I may have copied something down wrong. This isn't a homework question but I just like to know how it works.

    Thank you.

    It's just an application of your rules of differentiation....
