Yes, you can apply the chain rule when determining the second derivative of a function. The process involves first finding the first derivative of the function using the chain rule, and then differentiating the result again to obtain the second derivative. The chain rule allows you to differentiate composite functions by considering the derivatives of the outer and inner functions separately and then multiplying them together.
