Are you talkin about the h's in the equations of finding derivatives? but that's not really used in physics. So give an example and we'll help you out!

well we are using derivatives in physics but an example would be secant slope= deltaY over delta X or ((2+h)^(2)-2^(2))/h

in math in general the first letters of the alphabet are just constants. If you've noticed for variables math always uses x, y, z and even r, s, t, v etc. But when mathematicians want to symbolize a constant in an equation/formula they will use the first half of the alphabet. So pretty much in that secant slope formula, it's just meaning there will be a number you plug in there.

so it just the same as x basically? okay makes sense i just never had a book throw in h thank you
