Corn is poured through a chute at the rate of 10ft^3 / min and falls in a conical pile whose bottom radius is always half the height. How fast is the circumference of the base changing when the pile is 8 feet high?
Please explain

  • Math - ,

    h = 2r, so

    v = 1/3 pi r^2 * 2r = 2pi/3 r^3

    dv/dt = 2pi r^2 dr/dt
    10 = 2pi*4^2 = 32pi dr/dt
    dr/dt = 5/16pi

    now, c = 2pi*r, so
    dc/dt = 2pi dr/dt
    = 2pi * 5/16pi = 10/16 = 5/8
