### What is Meant by the Second Derivative?

In Maths, the second derivative means second order derivative of a given function. In Calculus, the process of finding the derivative of a function is called the differentiation. Hence, the process of finding the second order derivative is called the second order differentiation. If a function is differentiated twice, then the second order derivative can be obtained.
For example, let f(x) = 8x2
When the function is differentiated for the first time, the first-order derivative obtained is
f’(x) = 16x
When the above-obtained function is differentiated for the second time, the second derivative obtained is
f”(x) = 16
