I think you mean x is the unit of time (i.e. seconds) and y is the unit of distance (i.e. metres). Good post, Tada.Originally posted by Tada@Mar 19 2004, 04:54 PM
Example with x as distance in units of meters in relation to y in units of seconds:
y = x^3, the derivative is y'= 3*x^2. so say at x=5, the distance is 125 meters, and the velocity, or for the derivative, is 75 meters per second, or x's per unit of y
