Answer to Question #4613 in Calculus for Owais

Question #4613
Hello, When the dr/dt for sphere is constant and r=at + b, how does dV/dt change over time? This is my work so far: dr/dt = a V=(4/3)(pi)r^3 dV/dt = 4(pi)r^2 (dr/dt) dV/dt = 4(pi)(at + b)^2 (a) Well, if radius is steadily decreasing, is change in volume decreasing constantly. I know in my work, since there is a variable t, volume would not change at a constant rate. But am I thinking about it correctly?
Expert's answer
Let's assume that a and b are greater than zero.
As you noted, dV/dt = 4a(pi)(at + b)^2. It's greater than zero anyway. So, V would increase while increasing t. Let's get d(dV/dt)/dt:
d(dV/dt)/dt = 8(a^2)(pi)(at+b). It's also greater then zero, so, dV/dt would increase while increasing t, similarly.
