## FORMULAS FOR REFERENCE

sin( A ± B ) = sin A cos B ± cos A sin B A+ B A− B
sin A + sin B = 2 sin cos
cos( A ± B ) = cos A cos B m sin A sin B 2 2
tan A ± tan B A+ B A− B
tan( A ± B ) = sin A − sin B = 2 cos sin
1 m tan A tan B 2 2
2 sin A cos B = sin( A + B ) + sin( A − B ) A+ B A− B
cos A + cos B = 2 cos cos
2 cos A cos B = cos( A + B ) + cos( A − B ) 2 2
2 sin A sin B = cos( A − B ) − cos( A + B ) A + B A −B
cos A − cos B = −2 sin sin

A right circular cone with base diameter 20 cm, height 20 cm, is held vertex
down and completely filled with water. There is a hole at the vertex through
which water leaks at a constant rate of 10 cm3 s-1. The water leaked out is caught
in a hemispherical bowl, of radius 10 cm, being held directly below the cone.

At the moment the depth of water caught in the bowl is 5 cm, calculate
