Differential concept question

  1. Nov 12, 2008 #1
    If ds = integration of f(t) dt then can I say:
    ds/dt= f(t)?

    I am very confuse with that. please help

    I'm very confused too with what you're asking.

    It *sounds* like you meant:

    If [tex]s = \int f(x) dx[/tex], is it true that [tex]\frac{ds}{dx} = f(x)[/tex]?

    If that's not what you mean, please correct me. If it is what you meant, then it's true. It is essentially the fundamental theorem of calculus.
