Calculus with Vectors is a part of the VCE Specialist Maths topic Vectors and subtopic Calculus and Motion with Vectors. In this point, we look at how to differentiate vectors. The following information is important:
- if the components of the vectors are differentiable functions, then the derivative of a vector is the sum of the derivatives of each component.
It is also important to note that the derivative of the position vector with respect tp rime is the velocity vector.
