According to the Doyle log rule , the volume V in broad feet of a log of length L (feet) and diameter D (inches) at the small end is
V= (D-4/4)^2 *L
Find the rate at which the volume is changing with respect to D for a 12-foot long log whose smallest diameter is a.) 8 inches, b.) 16 inches, c.) 24 inches, and d.) 36 inches.
The Rate of Change of Volume and Diameter of a Tree and Acceleration and Velocity Functions are investigated.
