So when there is a dot above the equation it means with respect to time. What does it mean if there are two on the top or one on the side?
Two on top of a variable usually mean the second derivative with respect to time. "One on the side" - can you give an example?
That is a shorthand of writing the derivative. Two dots above would mean double derivative. One on the side - I don't recall that one. PS. 0405, 0406, 0408 and they all showed up with my post not before
One dot on top usually means the first derivative with respect to time (that is, speed), two dots on top the second derivative with respect to time (that is, acceleration). A dot on the side? Show us an example of what you mean and you'll get a better answer.
perhaps the dot on the side - he is refering to f prime and f double prime - only thing i can think of, only it's not a dot.
That's hard to tell from the RHS only, as both derivatives (with and without dot) are interesting. You can check the units to find it out.
ohh! sorry read half of the first sentence well 2 on top means: .. x = d^{2}x ______________ dt^{2} second derivative eg if x=t^{8} e^{(t2)} a = d^{2}x ______________ dt^{2} get answer using wits,(:tongue: it's short) aNs a= 56t^{6}e^{(t2)} + 34t^{8}e^{(t2)} 4t^{10}e^{(t2)}
