Ms. Davis loves a good cup of coffee. If she puts on a pot of coffee using coneshaped coffee filter of radius 6 cm and depth 10 cm, and the water begins to drip out through the hole at the bottom at a constant rate of 1.5 cm^3 per second, determine how fast the water level is falling when the depth is 8 cm.
Help? :/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0volume=V depth=d r=radius we want to find d' when d=8cm V=1/3 *pi*r^2*d find derivative we have V'=1/3*pi*2rr'*d+1/3*pi*r^2*d' ..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you use the product rule we have two triangles so there is a way we can write this with just d' or d without r or r'

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we have to triangles inside the cone so we have 6/r=10/d so r=6d/10=3d/5 so r'=3d'/5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so we have V'=1/3*pi*2*3d/5*3d'/5*d+1/3*pi*9r^2/5*d' so we can find d' plug in the values for V' and d and then solve for d'
