- If $y=f(x)$,then $\large\frac{dy}{dx}$ measures the rate of change of $y$ w.r.t $x$.
- $\big(\large\frac{dy}{dx}\big)_{x=x_0}$ represents the rate of change of $y$ w.r.t $x$ at $x=x_0$

Step 1:

Given : The radius of the air bubble is increasing at the rate of $\large\frac{1}{2}$$cm/s$

(i.e)$\large\frac{dr}{dt}=\frac{1}{2}$$cm/s$

Radius $r=1cm$

Volume of the sphere $v=\large\frac{4}{3}$$\pi r^3$

Differentiating w.r.t $t$ on both sides we get,

$\large\frac{dv}{dt}=\frac{4}{3}$$\times \pi\times 3r^2.\large\frac{dr}{dt}$

Step 2:

Substituting for $r$ and $\large\frac{dr}{dt}$ we get,

$\large\frac{dv}{dt}=\frac{4}{3}$$\times \pi\times 3\times (1)^2\times \large\frac{1}{2}$

$\Rightarrow \large\frac{dv}{dt}$$=2\pi cm^3/s$

The rate at which the volume of the air bubble increases is $2\pi cm^3/s$
