If I'm asked to find the acceleration at t=2 s I can just put the X with two dots on top of it parentheses(2 s)?

X(2) = what ever I calculate it being equal to

that's all I have to put right the X with two dots indicated the derivative of x( distance) the two dots indicating the second derivative acceleration

If I wanted to show like I don't know the first derivative of volume with reference of time I can just put V with a dot above it right i don't have to put V = volume or X = displacement next to it right?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution
