of 4 ft per second. Find how fast the top of the ladder is sliding down the

a cylinder. The radius of the cylinder increases at a rate of 4 meters/ hour.

and h is the height or thickness). At what rate is the thickness of the oil spill decreasing when the radius is
100 meters? (We assume that the oil and the water are not mixing so the
volume of the cylinder remains constant) Problem 1 9 Find the area of the largest rectangle that can be drawn with the left side along the y—axis, the bottom side along the x-axis and the upper right corner on the curve y = 31%;. (see below) ...
