**Damon**, Friday, March 28, 2014 at 11:48pmthe rate of change of volume is the surface area times the rate of change of height

450 ft^3/min = surface area * dh/dt

surface area = pi r^2

450 = pi (30^2) dh/dt

dh/dt = .159 ft/min

You could do this by saying

V = pi r^2 h

dV/dh = pi r^2

dV/dh*dh/dt = pi r^2 dh/dt

chain rule

dV/dt = pi r^2 dh/dt

but most of us just look at the lake rising an inch and seeing that the added volume is the area times one inch
