A common definition I've read: A derivative of a arbitrary function is the change in one given instant.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

It's hard to think about it. I mean, movement, which is change of position cannot be defined for zero time.

Has Zeros paradox something to do with this? If I don't misstaken, Zeros paradox is about the sum of infinity many parts can be finite.

Very confusing... :grumpy:
