First and second derivative of a function

What is point of inflection of a function? Point of inflection of a function is defined as the point where the function changes the concavity, concave up corresponds to a positive second derivative and concave downward corresponds to a negative second derivative therefore at this point when the function changes from concave up to concave downward then the second derivative must be equal to zero at that point.
