OMG PLZ PLZ HELP, Mind blank... I Think I Have to Integrate It...
An oil tanker aground on a reef is losing oil and producing an oil slick that is radiating out at
a rate approximated by the function dr/dt=20/sqrt(t), t >= 1, where r is the radius of the circular slick in metres after t minutes. If the radius of the slick is 21 metres, after 15 seconds, find, to the nearest metre, the radius of the slick after 10 minutes

Plz Someone

integrate your equation

OpenStudy (anonymous):

40*sqrt(t)+constant, now what

OpenStudy (zarkon):

you have to use the initial condition to find the value of c

OpenStudy (anonymous):

KK, 21=40*sqrt(0.25)+c
so c = 1
r=40*sqrt(t)+1

yep

thanks, i cant belive i did not see it thank you soo much

OpenStudy (anonymous):

r=40*sqrt(10)+1=127.491
nerest meter is 127

OpenStudy (zarkon):

yep
