# How do you do a related rate problem calculus?

## How do you do a related rate problem calculus?

Let’s use our Problem Solving Strategy to answer the question.

- Draw a picture of the physical situation. See the figure.
- Write an equation that relates the quantities of interest. A.
- Take the derivative with respect to time of both sides of your equation. Remember the chain rule.
- Solve for the quantity you’re after.

**How is calculus used in related rates?**

In differential calculus, related rates problems involve finding a rate at which a quantity changes by relating that quantity to other quantities whose rates of change are known. The rate of change is usually with respect to time.

**What is rate Change calculus?**

To find the average rate of change, we divide the change in y (output) by the change in x (input). And visually, all we are doing is calculating the slope of the secant line passing between two points.

### What does Dr DT stand for?

DRDT

Acronym | Definition |
---|---|

DRDT | Distributed and Reliable Data Transmission (wireless sensor networks) |

DRDT | Deeply Rooted Dance Theater (Chicago, IL) |

DRDT | Deputy Assistant Secretary for Reactor Systems Development and Technology |

**What does Dr over DT mean?**

NOTE: dr/dt is the radial component of velocity and r dθ/dt is the transverse component. The magnitude of the velocity, |v|, is called speed.

**How do you find the rate of change Example?**

Other examples of rates of change include:

- A population of rats increasing by 40 rats per week.
- A car traveling 68 miles per hour (distance traveled changes by 68 miles each hour as time passes)
- A car driving 27 miles per gallon (distance traveled changes by 27 miles for each gallon)

#### Is rate of change same as derivative?

The instantaneous rate of change of any function (commonly called rate of change) can be found in the same way we find velocity. The function that gives this instantaneous rate of change of a function f is called the derivative of f. if this limit exists.
