Forgive the basic question but my Google Fu isn't strong enough in math.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I understand that for constant velocity the function of the distance relative to the time takes the form of: d=A*t+ B

Then of course the first derivative is the velocity: d'=v=A, which is a constant (expected since we started with a constant velocity).

Q1: how do you represent d' in Leibniz's notation?

Q2: how do you go from d' to the formula v=d/t?

Thanks
