we're told that the radius of hysterical ball is increasing at a rate of two centimeters per minute. So if we call the Radius, are in time T we have that d R D t is equal to positive, too, and were asked at what rate the surface area of the ball was increasing and the radius is eight centimeters. So are the radius is eight to determine the rate at which the surface area goal is increasing. First, it's fine what the surface area is in terms of the radius of the spiritual ball. So we know that the surface area of a bull this is four pi r squared and therefore we have the rate of change of the surface area with respective time. This is the SPT and by the chain rule. This is eight pi r times d r d t. And so, in the context of this problem, when R is equal to eight and be our duty is to this is a pie times eight times two, which is 128th pie. I don't know. It's from three, and this is the rate of change of the surface area surface area is in this case, square centimeters and the time is in minutes. So this is 128 high square, centimeters per minute. I'm so mad.
