iop360 Group Title

A large container has the shape of a frustum of a cone with top radius 8m, bottom radius 2m, and height 6m. The container is being filled with water at the constant rate of 2.9m^3/min. At what rate is the level of water rising at the instant the water is 1m deep? Answer: 10.3cm/min

    I'm so sorry that I'm underestimate this Related Rate frustum of Cone! Here's the correct logic: V = π/ 3 ( R² + Rr + r² ) H With r = 2 and R is Radius variable and H is the Height variable -> V = π/ 3 ( R² + 2R+ 4 ) H ( 1 ) From the ratio of right triangle: ( R - 2 ) / ( 8 - 2 ) = H/ 6 --> R = H + 2 (2) Plug (2) into (1): => V = π/ 3 [ ( H +2) + 2( H +2) + 4 ] H = π/ 3 [ H³ + 6H² + 12H ] so V' = π/ 3 [ 3H² + 12H + 12 ] H' At H = 1: V' = 27 π/ 3 * H' 2.9 = 9 π * H' Thus H' = 2.9 / 9π = .1025 m/ min = 10.3 cm/ min

    @Chlorophyll one question though.. what do you do exactly during the ratios of the triangle part? eg. say my top radius was 9, bottom was 8, and height was 5 how do you set it up exactly?

    Ratio R and H: ( R - 8 )/ ( 9-8) = H/5 -> R = ( H/5 ) + 8
