Was looking for "the first derivative", but you are correct.

OK. dv/dt would be shorthand for the first derivative. At any rate you tested my memory of differential calculus.

what is the brain?

While your brain represents about 2-3% of your total body weight, 25% of the cholesterol in your body is found in your brain, where it plays important roles in such things as membrane function, acts as an antioxidant, and serves as the raw material from which we are able to make things like progesterone, estrogen, cortisol, testosterone and even vitamin D.

The title of this novel (and later the film), was supposed to suggest soybeans and lentils.

Correct, the first nuclear detonation (assuming you meant the first atomic mushroom cloud). The official codename was "Trinity". The device was an implosion-type plutonium fission bomb, of the same design as the Fat Man bomb dropped on Nagasaki less than a month later. The decision to do a test explosion first was based on the complexity of the implosion design (vs. the simpler design of the Little Boy bomb dropped on Hiroshima).
