Ex 6.1, 6 The radius of a circle is increasing at the rate of 0.7 cm/s. What is the rate of increase of its circumference? Let r be the radius of circle
& C be the circumference of circle
Given that
Radius of a circle is increasing at the rate of 0.7 cm/sec
i.e. 𝒅𝒓/𝒅𝒕 = 0.7 cm/sec
We need find rate of change of circumference of circle w. r. 𝑡 time
i.e. we need to calculate 𝒅𝑪/𝒅𝒕
We know that
Circumference of circle = 2πr
Now,
𝑑𝐶/𝑑𝑡 = (𝑑(2𝜋𝑟))/𝑑𝑡
𝑑𝐶/𝑑𝑡 = 2π 𝒅𝒓/𝒅𝒕
𝑑𝐶/𝑑𝑡 = 2π × 0.7
𝑑𝐶/𝑑𝑡 = 1.4π
(From (1): 𝑑𝑟/𝑑𝑡 = 5 )
Since circumference is in cm & time is in sec
𝑑𝐶/𝑑𝑡 = 1.4π cm/sec
Hence, circumference of circle is increasing at the rate of 1.4π cm/sec
