Subject: Third derivative
Hi, I am trying to do some calculus with my pre-calculus students.....It's been a long time since I did any and I never took physics. I know that the first derivative is velocity, and the second derivative is acceleration. What is the 3rd derivative? Is it inertia? I came across a statement that the 3rd derivative is used in physics. Can you give me some information as to how it is used? Thanks much!
