View Full Version : false summit
an optical illusion causing a hiker to think that the top of the climb is just ahead ..but the trail just keeps climbing...@#$%^
This is a point where the 2nd derivative of elevation with respect to distance equals zero. At the true summit, the first derivative equals zero. Calculus is good for something.
DebW, you are something else. I bet you have some really smart kids.:D
