thus the exact formular now the problem ask to find a %change in the period T given the %change in L length to be 2%.Help me solve the problem.

note the function is a straight line hence for all functions the x intercept is found when y is 0 so setting (x-3)/5 =0 will give x=3 and the y intercept will be found when x=0 thus y=(0-3)/5 .Gives y=-3/5.

A solid consist of a hemisphere of radius r joined joined to a cone of constant height 60cm.The base of the cone is a plane face of a hemisphere.If r increases at a rate of 2cm/m.Calculate the rate of increase of the volume of the solid if r=60.leave answer in terms of pi. [volume of sphere=(4pir^3/...

The period T, of a simple pendulum is dwefined by the function T=4pi rut(l/g) where g is the constant gravitational acceleration and l the length of the pendulum.find the %change in the period caused by lengthening the pendulum by 2%.please help i diffrentiated to get dt/dl=pi/rut lg .I'm stuck there.

impute (1/2) for x in f'(x) to obtain the grad of the line .then again for x in y=f(x) to obtain the y value thus the point becomes p(1/2;sin^2 1/2)......and grad 2sin(1/2)cos(1/2)........!
