**Anonymous**, Sunday, November 11, 2007 at 1:28pmEvaluate the limit as h -> 0 of:

[tan (pi/6 + h) - tan(pi/6)]/h

I thought the answer was √3/3, or tan(pi/6, but apparently that is wrong, any tips here?

**H H Chau**, Friday, August 22, 2014 at 7:10pmtan(θ)=x/1

cos(θ)=1/sqrt(x^2+1)

sec^2(θ)=x^2+1

dθ/dt=3 rev/min=6π rad/min

x=tan(θ)

dx/dt=sec^2(θ) dθ/dt

At x=0.5 km

dx/dt=(0.5^2+1)*6π=23.6 km/min=1414 kph
