I have a vector//<![CDATA[ aax_getad_mpb({ "slot_uuid":"f485bc30-20f5-4c34-b261-5f2d6f6142cb" }); //]]> v= ai+bxj

Now I want to finda.So I apply chain rule and differentiate dv/dx * dx/dt = bj* Vx= bj*ai??

Now what does this mean? Is this allright? Should I not care about the vector directions when differentiating and just use the magnitudesa= ab , if yes then why? And what will be the direction of the acceleration then?
