this is not such an easy question to answer. especially since vector functions can have more dimensions than we can imagine, much less graph.

in any case, it represents the rate of change of the original vector function. the components of the vector function are the derivatives of the respective components of the original vector function - Jan 30th 2008, 07:33 PMcurvature
