calculus (related rates)

A particle moves in the plane along the curve y=xln(x). At what rate is the distance from the origin increasing at the moment its x-coordinate is 2 cm and its x-coordinate is increasing at a rate of 17 cm/sec?

  • calculus (related rates) -

    distance=sqrt(y^2 + x^2)
    ddistance/dt= 1/2distance *( 2ydy/dt+2xdx/dt)

    now examine y dy/dt= x ln(x) (ln(x)+1) dx/dt

    ddistance/dt=rateyou want=1/2distance*(2xlnx+1)17cm/sec + x dx/dt)

    check that, I typed it in a hurry.
