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

    \[\frac{ dV }{ dt } = +2.9, \frac{ dH }{ dt }=?\]

    i think what we are supposed to do though is make it into two cones though

    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
