area of a semicircle is increasing at a constant rate. At 5 secs the area is 4pi. At 7 secs the area is 5pi. In terms of r at what rate is the radius changing?

  • calculus - ,

    In two seconds, the area increased by π. So,

    da/dt = π/2

    a = π/2 r2

    At t=7, a=5π
    5π = π/2 r2
    10 = r2
    r = √10

    a = π/2 r2
    da = πr dr/dt
    π/2 = π√10 dr/dt
    dr/dt = 1/2√10
