Abstract

Very often we would like to know an instantaneous rate of change of something. For instance, consider a one-dimensional motion of a particle along the x axis: at each time t we have the position of the particle given by a function x(t). If at the initial moment t = 0 the particle was at the position x0 = x(0), then at time t it arrives at the point with the coordinate x(t).
