Volume Flow Rate

Gas is escaping from a spherical balloon at a constant rate of 2 ft3/min. How fast, in ft2/min, is the outer surface area of the balloon shrinking when the radius is 12 ft?

A.   1/2 C.   1/3
B.   1/5 D.   1/4


A conveyor is dispersing sands which forms into a conical pile whose height is approximately 4/3 of its base radius. Determine how fast the volume of the conical sand is changing when the radius of the base is 3 feet, if the rate of change of the radius is 3 inches per minute.

A.   2π ft/min C.   3π ft/min
B.   4π ft/min D.   5π ft/min
