Higher-order Derivatives

The first derivative is the slope of a curve, and the second derivative is the slope of the slope, like acceleration. So what's the third derivative? (Fun fact: it's actually called jerk.)

Third and Higher Order Derivatives

         

For the function \[f(x)=e^x(7\sin x+3\cos x),\] what is the third derivative \( f'''(x)\)?

What is the \(19 ^{th}\) derivative of \(\displaystyle \frac{1}{3}e^{3x}?\)

If \(f(x)=2x^4-15x^3+15x-17,\) what is the value of \(\displaystyle \lim_{x \to 1} \frac{f''(x)+66}{x-1}?\)

What is the third derivative of the function \(y=8\sin x\) with respect to \(x\)?

If \(f(x)=e^{5x},\) what is the value of \(f'''(0)?\)
