# Physical Applications of Derivatives - Expii

If position is viewed as a function (in units of length) of time (in units of time), then velocity is a derivative (in units of length / time), while acceleration is a second derivative (in units of length / time^2). On the one hand, we can now use derivatives in physics. On the other hand, this observation breathes physical life and intuition into the notion of differentiation.
