Homework Help: calculus

Posted by Sam on Friday, May 6, 2011 at 6:17pm.

If f is the focal length of a convex lens and an object is placed at a distance p from the lens, then its image will be at a distance q from the lens, where f, p, and q are related by the lens equation

1/f = 1/p + 1/q

What is the rate of change of p with respect to q if q = 2 and f = 6? (Make sure you have the correct sign for the rate.)
