what could be the units for dy/dx if y is the surface area of a tumor and x is the radius of the tumor?
Would it be meters per radian?
(Square millimeters per millimeter
Millimeters per centimeter
Meters per second
Gallons per hour
Or meters per radian)

  1. area is mm^2
    radius is mm
    so, mm^2/mm

    where would you get radians? That is a measure of the central angle of some area sector or arc length!

    dy/dx is how fast the area changes for a given radius value.
