Example 1 Find the rate of change of the area of a circle per second with respect to its radius r when r = 5 cm. We have to find rate of change of area of circle with respect to radius i.e. we need to find ﷐𝑑(𝐴𝑟𝑒𝑎 𝑜𝑓 𝑐𝑖𝑟𝑐𝑙𝑒)﷮𝑑 (𝑟𝑎𝑑𝑖𝑢𝑠 𝑜𝑑 𝑐𝑖𝑟𝑐𝑙𝑒)﷯ = ﷐𝑑𝐴﷮𝑑𝑟﷯ We know that Area of circle = π r2 A = πr2 Finding ﷐𝑑𝐴﷮𝑑𝑟﷯ ﷐𝑑𝐴﷮𝑑𝑟﷯ = ﷐𝑑(𝜋𝑟2)﷮𝑑𝑟﷯ = π ﷐(𝑟2)﷮𝑑𝑟﷯ = π (2 . r2 –1) = 2π r For r = 5 cm ﷐𝑑𝐴﷮𝑑𝑟﷯ = 2π (5) . ﷐𝑐𝑚2﷮𝑐𝑚﷯ = 10π ﷐𝒄𝒎𝟐﷮𝒄𝒎﷯
