6. A truck equipped with a special radar detection system is parked 40 miles from the launch site of a
recently fired rocket. As the rocket ascends the angle formed between the driver and the rocket is
increasing (see figure below). How fast is the driver’s angle changing at the moment the rocket is
traveling 400 miles per hour and the distance from the rocket and the truck is 50 miles. Give units. z y ↑

7. A truck is traveling to a launch site, where a rocket has been launched. How fast is the passenger’s
angle changing at the moment the truck is 40 miles from the launch site and is traveling at a speed
of 75 miles per hour? The rocket at that particular time is traveling at a rate of 400 miles per hour.
