    A plane flying at an altitude of 25,000 ft. has a defective airspeed indicator. To determine her speed, the pilot sights a fixed point on the ground. At the moment when the angle of depression (From the horziontal) of her line of sight is 65 degrees, she notes that this angle is increasing at 1.5 degrees per second. What is the


    A large storage tank, open to the atmosphere at the top and filled with water, develops a small hole in its side at a point 16.0 m below the water level. If the rate of flow from the leak is 2.50 x 10^ -3 m^3/ min, determine (a) the speed at which the water leaves the hole and (b) the diameter of the hole.

    A baseball diamond is a square whose sides are 60 ft long. a player running from first to second base has a speed of 25 ft per second. at what rate is the player's distance from home base changing when he is 10 ft from second base?

    Green's Theorem - Work

    A particle starts at the point (-2,0), moves along the x-axis to (2,0), and then along the semicircle y= squareroot(4 - x^2) to the starting point. Use Green's Theorem to find the work done on this particle by the force field F(x,y)= < x, x^3 + 3xy^2 >.
