Ok..Im new to calculus and I'm looking for a simple explanation here...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Lets say u have a function f(x)..the derivative of that function at point x is the slope of the tangent line, right? What would the second derivative be? How is that represented on a graph?
