We define the vector .

What is the  derivative of ?

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

To obtain the derivative we need to compute the derivative of each component. Since we are looking for the derivative of order n we have to differentiate each component n times to obtain the required result.

We know that :

The nth derivatives of the constant is 0.

Thereore we obtain:
