(4 points) If the water level in the bowl is h cm deep, find the radius of the surface of the water as a function of h.

(6 points) The water level drops at a rate of 0.1 cm per hour. At what rate is the radius of the water decreasing when the depth is 5 cm?

(10-h)^2 + r^2 = 10^2

r = √(100-(10-h)^2)
