## What is the 3rd derivative called?

jerk j
Less well known is that the third derivative, i.e. the rate of increase of acceleration, is technically known as jerk j. Jerk is a vector, but may also be used loosely as a scalar quantity because there is not a separate term for the magnitude of jerk analogous to speed for magnitude of velocity.

What is the derivative of 4?

Since 4 is constant with respect to x , the derivative of 4 with respect to x is 0 .

### What is the derivative of a 2?

2 is a constant whose value never changes. Thus, the derivative of any constant, such as 2 , is 0 .

### How do you write a 5th derivative?

And so on (provided that all those functions are differentiable). Instead of writing f′′′′′(x) for the 5th derivative of f, we write f(5)(x).
