A weight is attached to one end of a 33 foot rope which passes over a pulley 18 feet above the ground. the other end is attached to a truck at a point 3 feet above the ground. if the truck moves away at a rate of 2 feet per second, how fast is the weight rising when the truck is 8 feet from the spot directly under the pulley?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.015 ^2 + x^2 = (33 y)^2 2x *dx/dt = 2 ( 33  y) * (dy/dt) x * dx/dt = (33y) * (dy/dt) x/ (33y) * dx/dt = dy/dt , this works

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.08 / ( 33  16 ) * 2 = 16/17 , x = 8 , that is given, y = 16 by plugging in 15^2 + x^2 = (33y)^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so dh/dt = the rate at which the weight is moving up ? interesting
