Question 1.
Find the rate of change of the area of a circle with respect to its radius, when
(a) r = 3 cm (b) r = 4 cm
Solution:
Let A be the area of the circle of radius r.
âˆ´ A = Ï€r2
and $$\frac{d A}{d r}$$ = 2Ï€r
(a) When r = 3 cm, $$\frac{d A}{d r}$$ = 2Ï€ Ã— 3 = 6Ï€ cm2
(b) When r = 4 cm, $$\frac{d A}{d r}$$ = 2Ï€ Ã— 4 = 8Ï€ cm2

Question 3.
The radius of a circle is increasing uniformly at the rate of 3 cm per second. Find the rate at which the area of the circle is increasing, when the radius is 10 cm.
Solution:
Let r be the radius of the circle.
âˆ´ Rate of increase of radius = $$\frac{d r}{d t}$$ = 3 cm/sec.
Now, area of circle Ï€ r2 = A (say).
âˆ´ $$\frac{d A}{d t}$$ = $$\frac{d}{d t}$$(Ï€r2) = $$\frac{d}{d t}$$(Ï€r2). $$\frac{d r}{d t}$$
= 2Ï€r Ã— 3 = 6Ï€r
When r = 10,
the rate of change of area = 6Ï€ Ã— 10 = 60 Ï€ cm2/sec.

Solution:
Let r be the radius of a wave circle.

When r = 8,
rate of increase in area = $$\frac{d A}{d t}$$
= 10 Ï€r = 10 Ã— Ï€ Ã— 8 = 80 Ï€ cm2/sec.

Solution:
The rate of change of radius of the circle w.r.t. time t is given to be 0.7 cm/sec, i.e., $$\frac{d r}{d t}$$ = 0.7 cm/sec.
Now, circumference of the circle is C = 2Ï€r.
âˆ´ The rate of change of circumference w.r.t. t is given by
= $$\frac{d \mathrm{C}}{d t}$$ = [$$\frac{d}{d r}$$(2r) . $$\frac{d r}{d t}$$]
= 2Ï€ . $$\frac{d r}{d t}$$ = 2Ï€ Ã— 0.7

âˆ´ Putting these values in (3), we get
$$\frac{d \mathrm{~A}}{d t}$$ = (- 5 Ã— 6) + 8 Ã— 4 = – 30 + 32
= 2cm2/min.
â‡’ A increases at the rate of 2 cm2/minute.

Solution:
Let AB be the ladder and OB be the wall.
At an instant, let
OA = x, OB = y.
âˆ´ x2 + y2 = 25
On differentiating w.r.t. t, we get

Hence, the height of the ladder on the wall is decreasing at the rate of $$\frac{2}{75}$$ m/sec = $$\frac{8}{3}$$ cm/sec.

Solution:
Let r be the radius of the air bubble. If V is the volume of bubble at time f, then V = $$\frac{4}{3}$$ Ï€r3.
The rate of increase of radius w.r.t. time t

Now, the rate of increase of volume V w.r.t. time t

$$\frac{4}{3}$$ Ï€. 3r2 . $$\frac{d r}{d t}$$
– 4 Ï€r2 ($$\frac{1}{2}$$)

Sand is pouring from a pipe at the rate of 12 cmÂ³/sec. The falling sand forms a cone on the ground in such a way that the height of the cone is always one-sixth of the radius of the base. How fast is the height of the sand-cone increasing, when the height is 4 cm?
Solution:
Let r and h be the radius and height of the sand-cone at time t respectively.
So, h = $$\frac{r}{6}$$ …….. (1)
Let V be the volume of the cone.
So, V = $$\frac{1}{2}$$ Ï€r2h = $$\frac{1}{3}$$ Ï€(6h)2h [âˆµ r = 6h]
= $$\frac{1}{3}$$ Ï€ Ã— 36h2 . h = 12 Ï€h3
âˆ´ $$\frac{d \mathrm{~V}}{d t}$$ = 12 Ï€ (3h2) $$\frac{d h}{d t}$$ = 36Ï€h2 $$\frac{d h}{d t}$$ ………. (2)

Question 15.
The total cost C(x) associated with production of x units of an item is given by C(x) = 0.007 x3 – 0.003x2 + 15x + 4000. Find the marginal cost, when 17 units are produced.
Solution:
Marginal cost MC = Instantaneous rate of change of total cost at any level of output
= $$\frac{d \mathrm{C}}{d x}$$
Now, C(x) = 0.007x3 – 0.003 x2 + 15x + 4000
âˆ´ MC = $$\frac{d \mathrm{C}}{d x}$$ = 3 Ã— 0.007x2 – 2 Ã— 0.003x + 15 dx
= 0.021 x2 – 0.006x + 15
When x = 17, $$\frac{d \mathrm{C}}{d x}$$ = 0.021 Ã— 17 Ã— 17 – 0.006 Ã— 17 + 15
= 6.069 – 0.102 + 15 = 20.967.
âˆ´ Marginal Cost = â‚¹ 20.97.

Question 16.
The total revenue received from the sale of x units of a product is given by R(x) = 13x2 + 26x + 15. Find the marginal revenue, when x = 7.
Solution:
Marginal Revenue (MR) = Rate of change of total revenue with respect to the number of items sold at an instant = $$\frac{d \mathrm{R}}{d x}$$.
We know that R(x) = 13x2 + 26x + 15
âˆ´ MR = $$\frac{d \mathrm{R}}{d x}$$ = 26x + 26 = 26 (x + 1)
When x = 7, âˆ´ MR = 26 (x + 1) = 26 (7 + 1) = 26 Ã— 8 = 208.
Hence, Marginal Revenue = â‚¹ 208.

Area of circle (A) = Ï€r2.
âˆ´ The rate of change of area w.r.t. its radius r = $$\frac{d \mathrm{A}}{d r}$$ = 2Ï€r
At r = 6, $$\frac{d \mathrm{~A}}{d r}$$ = 2Ï€ Ã— 6 = 12Ï€ cm2/radius.
â‡’ Part (B) is the correct answer.

(A) 116
(B) 96
(C) 90
(D) 126
Solution:
R(x) = 3x2 + 36x + 5
âˆ´ MR = $$\frac{d \mathrm{~R}}{d x}$$ = 6x + 36
âˆ´ For x = 15, $$\frac{d \mathrm{~R}}{d x}$$ = 6 Ã— 15 + 36
= 90 + 36 = 126 [Given x = 15]
â‡’ Part (D) is the correct answer.
