Bacteria are growing in a circular colony one bacterium thick. the bacteria are growing at a constant rate, making the area of the colony increase at a rate of 12mm^2 per hour. How fast is the radius changing when the radius is 3mm?

  • math -

    A = pi r^2
    dA/dt = pi (2r) dr/dt
    12 = pi (2*3) dr/dt
    dr/dt = 2/pi mm/hr
