Y'/ dt- . when e = 7[/4 500 ft Step 2: Write down the additional numerical informarion. da .-= 0.14rad/min dl when Step 3: Write down what we are asked to find. We wane dy /dl when a = 7T /4. Step 4: Write an equation that relates the variablesy and e. y-= tan a, or y = 500tan a 500 Step 5: Differentiate with' respect to t using the Chain Rule. The result tells how dy/dt (which we want) is related to de/de (which we know). dy ? de .-= 500sec-e-dt dt Step 6: Evaluate with a = )(/4 and da/dt = 0.14 to find dy/dt. d . . .~ = 500(,J2)2(0.14) = (1000)(0.14) = 140 dt . see .:::.=.J2 4 At .themoment in question, the balloon is rising at the rate of 140 ft/rnin....
