Calculus: need clarification to where the #'s go
A particle is moving along the curve y= 2 \sqrt{4 x + 4}. As the particle passes through the point (3, 8), its x-coordinate increases at a rate of 5 units per second. Find the rate of change of the distance from the particle to the origin at this instant. *I just need step by ...

Air is being pumped into a spherical balloon so that its volume increases at a rate of 80 \mbox{cm}^3\mbox{/s}. How fast is the surface area of the balloon increasing when its radius is 14 \mbox{cm}? Recall that a ball of radius r has volume \displaystyle V=\frac{4}{3}\pi r^3 ...

When air expands adiabatically (without gaining or losing heat), its pressure P and volume V are related by the equation PV^{1.4}=C where C is a constant. Suppose that at a certain instant the volume is 330 cubic centimeters and the pressure is 79 kPa and is decreasing at a ...
