of the spherical segment is given by this formula (which we will assume): V = ( π /3) H (27 – H 2 ). Give EXACT ANSWERS to the questions below. (a) Find the volume of the spherical segment if H=1 \$\$26 π 3 (b) Find the rate of change of the volume with respect to H of the spherical segment at H=1 : :
(c) Use the tangent line approximation at H=1 to estimate the value of H that will yield a spherical segment having volume 25 cubic inches:

12/14/16, 3)58 PM hw18S3.10 According to the ``law of sines,'' you always have: b a = sin B sin A Suppose that a and b are pieces of metal which are hinged at C . At first the angle A is π /4 radians=45 o and the angle B is π /3 radians = 60 o . You then widen A to 46 o , without changing the sides a and b . Our goal in this problem is to use the tangent line approximation to estimate the angle B (a) Notice that the angle B is a function of the angle A ; i.e. B=f(A) . Consequently, it makes sense to calculate the implicit derivative: .

A second long metal rod is attached to the first one at the point Q =(1,0) and makes an angle of 45 o with the first. A third long metal rod is attached to the first rod at the point P =(0,0) and is free to rotate about P . Thus, the angle θ made by the first and third bars is free to change. For θ between 0 o and 90 o the second and third bars cross at a point R =(x,y) (see figure).
