First, a review problem: Consider a sphere of radius 10cm. If the radius changes 0.1cm (a very small amount) how much does the volume change? 3 4 3 V r π = 2 4 dV r dr = ( 29 2 4 10cm 0.1cm dV = 3 40 cm dV = The volume would change by approximately . 3 40 cm

Now, suppose that the radius is changing at an instantaneous rate of 0.1 cm/sec. (Possible if the sphere is a soap bubble or a balloon.) 3 4 3 V r π = 2 4 dV dr r dt dt = ( 29 2 cm 4 10cm 0.1 sec dV dt = 3 cm 40 sec dV dt = The sphere is growing at a rate of . 3 40 cm / sec Note: This is an exact answer, not an approximation like we got with the differential problems.

Water is draining from a cylindrical tank at 3 liters/second. How fast is the surface dropping? L 3 sec dV dt = - 3 cm 3000 sec = - Find dh dt 2 V r h π = 2 dV dh r dt dt = ( r is a constant.) 3 2 cm 3000 sec dh r dt - = 3 2 cm 3000 sec dh dt r = - (We need a formula to relate V and h . )
