( 41 . ) ( 2 + += T T T V cm 3 when the temperature is T o C, and that its mass is m grams, where V V V m 09 . 1 39 . ) ( + = (i) Find the rate of change of the insect’s volume with respect to temperature. (ii) Find the rate of change of the insect’s mass with respect to volume. (iii) When T = 10 o C, what is the insect’s volume? At what rate is the insect’s mass changing with respect to temperature when T = 10 o C? *V.A. Tucker and K.
