    Implicit Differentiation quick question

    when you derive h/500 i know that h would turn into 1 but since 500 is a constant would that just be 0? please someone explain???

    Re: Implicit Differentiation quick question

    I think you assume that h is a function of t, so \frac{d}{dt} \frac{h(t)}{500} = \frac{d}{dt} \frac{1}{500} h(t) = \frac{1}{500} \frac{dh(t)}{dt}.
