**Steve**, Thursday, March 14, 2013 at 3:23pmway off.

First, volume is cm^3

v = 4/3 pi r^3

dv/dt = 4 pi r^2 dr/dt

at t=5, r=15 so

dv/dt = 4 pi * 225 * 3 = 2700 pi cm^3/min

How did you come up with 45? Way small, and I'd surely expect a pi to appear somewhere in any problem involving a sphere.
