Rate of Change of Volume and Diameter of a Tree, Acceleration and Velocity Functions

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 position function of a particle is given by s= 1/ t^2 + 2t + t
where s is the height in feet and t is the time in seconds.
Find the velocity and acceleration functions

Solution Summary

The Rate of Change of Volume and Diameter of a Tree and Acceleration and Velocity Functions are investigated.
