  1. Chapter 6 Class 12 Application of Derivatives
  2. Serial order wise


Ex 6.1,5 A stone is dropped into a quiet lake and waves move in circles at the speed of 5 cm/s. At the instant when the radius of the circular wave is 8 cm, how fast is the enclosed area increasing? Let r be the radius of circle & A be the Area of circle When stone is dropped into a lake waves move in a circle at the speed of 5 cm/sec Thus, ๐‘‘๐‘Ÿ๏ทฎ๐‘‘๐‘ก๏ทฏ = 5cm/sec We need find how fast area increasing w. r. t time when radius is 8cm i.e. we need to find ๐‘‘๐ด๏ทฎ๐‘‘๐‘ก๏ทฏ when r = 8 cm.
