A triangle ABC has sides of length AB = 3 inches and AC = 4 inches. Let t denote the angle at vertex A, and let s denote the length of the remaining side BC. If t increases at the rate of 2 radians per second, at what rate (in inches per second) does s change at the instant when t is a right angle? [Hint: You will need to use the Law of Cosines.]
