Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You only give 2 dimensions. Usually, when dealing with a volume based problem, you have 3 dimensions. the 1.5x1.2m shows the rectangle. You need a zdirection to get the updown position.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1V=bhd b=base h=height D=depth \[\frac{dV}{dt}=\frac{dV}{db}\frac{db}{dt}+\frac{dV}{dh}\frac{dh}{dt}+\frac{dV}{dD}\frac{dD}{dt}\] You're missing a lot of information. It's very difficult to understand your problem. To find the depth, you need the volume. If you're given dV/dt, and that value is not equal to 0, that means the volume is changing.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if your base and height are held constant, then your depth is changing. the equation becomes \[\frac{dV}{dt}=\frac{dV}{db}*0+\frac{dV}{dh}*0+\frac{dV}{dD}\frac{dD}{dt}\]
