    You seem to have left out some words in your question, such as:

    The radius of sphere IS INCREASING at the rate of 4cm per second.

    Surface area is
    A= 4*pi*R^2

    The rate of increase of surface area is
    dA/dt = 8*pi*R*(dR/dt)

    Plug in 6 cm for R, and dR/dt = 4 cm/s, and compute

  • physics -

    R=4t (cm)
    t=1.5 s.
    =64πt²=64π(1.5)²=452.4 cm²

  • physics -

    dA/dt = 64πt²=128 πt=128 π•1.5=603.2 cm²/s
