Homework Help: College Calculus 1

Posted by Please Help! on Friday, October 1, 2010 at 3:33pm.

A runner sprints around a circular track of radius 150 m at a constant speed of 7 m/s. The runner's friend is standing at a distance 300 m from the center of the track. How fast is the distance between the friends changing when the distance between them is 300 m? (Round to 2 decimal places.

My teacher tried helping me with this problem and only confused me more. I drew a diagram. I used the formula c^2=a^2+b^2-2abcosC. Right now I have 2L(dL/dt)=2(150)(300)sin(angle)(dangle/dt) I think (dangle/dt) is 7/150. This would give you (solving for dL/dt:
(dL/dt)= (45000sin(angle)(7/100))/300
HELP!!!!!
