**Damon**, Tuesday, July 12, 2011 at 7:17pmA = .5 b h

so

87,000 = .5 b (9500)

b = 18.32

then calculus

dA/dt = .5 (b dh/dt + h db/dt)

1500 = .5 ( 18.32 * 3000 + 9500 * db/dt)

**Damon**, Tuesday, July 12, 2011 at 7:33pmI got -5.47

If the base were constant the area would be increasing faster than 1500cm^2/min due to the rapid altitude increase. Therefore the base must be decreasing.

**Damon**, Tuesday, July 12, 2011 at 8:11pm1500 = .5 ( 18.32 * 3000 + 9500 * db/dt)

3000 = 54960 + 9500 db/dt

9500 db/dt = -51,960

db/dt = -5.47
