A 3-dimensional structure is obtained from rotating the parabola y=x^2 about the y-axis. Each second, 2π units^3 of water is being poured into the structure from the top. When 8π units^3 of water has been poured in the structure, the instantaneous change in water height level is a/b, where a and b are coprime positive integers. What is the value of a+b?

    How do I find the critical values? y= 4/x + tan(πx/8) What I did is I simplified it to y= 4x^-1 + tan(πx/8) then I took the derivative y'= -4x^-2 + (π/8)(sec(πx/8))^2 Then I simplied it y'= -4/x^2 + (π/8)(sec(πx/8))^2

    I worked some on this earlier, and botched it a bit, so here goes again. A water tank is made by rotating f(x)=2^x-1 between [0,2] about the y-axis. The water tank is initially full, when a hole is opened at the bottom tip so that …
