A ladder 20 feet long leans against the wall of a vertical building. If the bottom of the ladder slides away from the building horizontally at a rate of 2 ft/sec, how fast is the ladder sliding down the building when the top of the ladder is 12 feet above the ground?

2. The radius r of a sphere is increasing at a rate of 2 inches per minute. Find the rate of change of the volume when r = 6 inches. Explain why the rate of change of the volume of the dr sphere is not constant even though is constant. dt

3. A water tank has the shape of an inverted right circular cone of altitude 12 ft and base radius 6 feet. If water is being pumped into the tank at a rate of 10 gal/min, approximate the rate at which the water level is rising when the water is 3 ft deep (1 gal is approximately 0.1335 ft 3 )

4. An observer, 300 meters from the launch pad of a rocket, watches it ascend vertically at 60 m/s. Find the rate of change of the distance between the rocket and the observer when the rocket is 400 meters high.

1. A ladder 13 ft tall is leaning against the side of a building. If the bottom of the ladder slides away fro the wall at a rate of 2 ft/sec., how fast is the top of the ladder sliding down the wall when the bottom of the ladder is 5 feet from the wall? 2. A spherical balloon is inflating at a rate of 60π in sec . How fast is the surface area of the balloon expanding when the radius of the balloon is 4 inches?

3. A spherical ball has its diameter increasing at 2 inches per second. How fast is the volume changing when the radius is 10 inches? 4. Oil spilled from a tanker spreads in a circle whose circumference increases at a rate of 40 ft/sec. How fast is the area of the spill increasing when the circumference of the circle is 100 π feet? 5. A light is on top of a 12 ft vertical pole. A 6 ft woman walks away from the pole base at 4 ft/sec. How fast is the angle made by the woman’s head, the light, and the pole base changing 2 seconds after she starts walking? 6. A 10 cm thick mill wheel is initially 90 cm in diameter and is wearing away (uniformly) at 55 cm 3 hr . How fast is the diameter changing after 20 hours? 7. Car A and B leave town at the same time. Car A heads due south at a rate of 80 km/hr and car B heads due west at a rate of 60 km/hr. How fast is the distance between the cars increasing after three hours?

9. The sides of an equilateral triangle are increasing at a rate of 27 in/sec. How fast is the triangle’s area increasing when the sides of the triangle are each 18 inches long? 10. An inverted conical container has a diameter of 42 in and a depth of 15 in. If water is 3 flowing out of the vertex of the container at a rate of 35 π in / sec , how fast is the depth of the water dropping when the height is 5 inches?
