Question

Answered step-by-step

A stone is dropped into a lake, creating a circular ripple that travels outward at a speed of 60 cm/s.

(a) Express the radius $ r $ of this circle as a function of the time $ t $ (in seconds).(b) If $ A $ is the area of this circle as a function of the radius, find $ A \circ r $ and interpret it.

A multivariate function is a function whose value depends on several variables. In contrast, a univariate function is a function whose value depends on only one variable. A multivariate function is also called a multivariate expression, a multivariate polynomial, a multivariate series, or a multivariate function of several variables.

In calculus, partial derivatives are derivatives of a function with respect to one or more of its arguments, where the other arguments are treated as constants. Partial derivatives contrast with total derivatives, which are derivatives of the total function with respect to all of its arguments.

all right after the stone has dropped the circular ripples traveling outward at a speed of 60 centimeters per second, and we want to find the radius as a function of time. So to get the radius, you would take the rate of travel in centimeters per second and multiply it by the time in seconds. And that would give you centimeters. And we know the rate of travel is 60 and we'll let t stand for time so the radius will be 60 t Now we'll find the area so we know the area of a circle is pi r squared. But let's replace the are with 60 t and we get pi times the quantity 60 t squared. And if we simplify that, we get 3600 pie times t squared. So what is that? That gives us the area as a function of time rather than the area as a function of radius
