Question

Ship A is heading east toward a port at 20 mi/h and another ship B is heading north from the port at 25 mi/h. How fast is the distance S between two ships changing at the time when ship A is 30 miles away from the port and ship B is 40 miles from the port? (Don’t forget to include units in your answer.)

Answer #1

Given data is represented in figure

From figure

At x=30 , y=40

s^2= 900+1600

S^2=2500

=> s=50

differentiate wrt t

At x=30, y=40 s=50

Therefore distance between two ships is changing at a rate of
**32 mi/hr**

Ships A and B leave port together. For the next 4 hours, ship A
travels at 35 mph in a direction 40 degrees east of north while
ship B travels 70 degrees north of west at 25 mph. What is the
distance, in mi, between the two ships 4 hours after they
depart?

One ship is approaching a port from the east, traveling west at
15 miles per hour, and is presently 3 miles east of the port. A
second ship has already left the port, traveling to the north at 10
miles per hour, and is presently 4 miles north of the port. At this
instant, what is the rate of change of the distance between two
ships? Are they getting closer or further apart?

At noon, ship A is 120 km west of ship B. Ship A is sailing
east at 20 km/h and ship B is sailing north at 15 km/h. How fast is
the distance between the ships changing at 4:00 PM?
km/h

(A)At noon, ship A is 140 km west of ship B. Ship A is sailing
east at 25 km/h and ship B is sailing north at 20 km/h. How fast is
the distance between the ships changing at 4:00 PM?
(b) If a snowball melts so that its surface area decreases at a
rate of 5 cm2/min, find the rate at which the diameter
decreases when the diameter is 9 cm.

Truck convoy A is approaching a depot from the east at 60 mi/hr
while convoy B is moving north away from the depot at 50 mi/h. How
fast is the distance between the convoys changing when A is 4 mi
from the depot and B is 3 mi from the depot?

Ships A and B leave port together. For the next two hours, ship
A travels at 24 mph in a direction 30 degrees west of north while
ship B travels 28 degrees east of north at 29 mph .
a)What is the distance between the two ships two hours after
they depart?
b) What is the speed of ship A as seen by ship B?

At noon, ship A is 150 km west of ship B. Ship A is sailing east
at 35 km/h and ship B is sailing north at 30 km/h. How fast is the
distance between the ships changing at 4:00 PM?
Gravel is being dumped from a conveyor belt at a rate of 30
ft3/min, and its coarseness is such that it forms a pile
in the shape of a cone whose base diameter and height are always
equal. How fast...

At noo. Ship A is 50km west of Ship B. Ship A is
sailing at 20 km/h and Ship B is sailing north at 10 km/h. How fast
is the distance between the ships changing at 4:00 Pm. Round to one
decimal place.

At noon, ship A is 30 nautical miles due west of ship B. Ship A
is sailing west at 24 knots and ship B is sailing north at 18
knots. How fast (in knots) is the distance between the ships
changing at 3 PM?

Two buses are driving along parallel freeways that are 20 mi
apart, one heading east and the other heading west. Assuming that
each bus drives a constant 50 mph, find the rate (in mph) at which
the distance between the buses is changing when they are 29 mi
apart, heading toward each other.
