Angular rate of change: A television camera at ground level is filming the lift-off of a space shuttle at a point 750 meters from the launch pad. Let (theta) be the angle of elevation of the shuttle and let s be the distance between the camera and the shuttle. Write (theta) as a function of s for the period of time when the shuttle is moving vertically. Differentiate the result to find d(theta)/dt in terms of s and ds/dt.
