How to find average rate of change How would I find the average rate of change over 8 minutes, of a person that runs at a rate of upsilon(t)=xsin(x^2−7x) ft/min? I missed when this was taught and I have no clue on how to do it. Help is greatly appreciated.

How to find average rate of change

The average rate of change of a function f(t) over the interval [a,b] is f ( b ) f ( a ) b a
The numerator f(b)−f(a) is the change in f, and b−a measures how long it took.
In this problem, you have to calculate the change in displacement. That will require integration.
To integrate, we would need to know the interval, which has not been specified. We know "b−a" but do not know b or a. Perhaps we are expected to assume that a=0 and b=8, but probably the problem as originally stated did not leave any ambiguity.

Cylindrical tank rate of change
Water is pouring into a cylinder with a radius of 5m and height of 20m at a rate of 3 cubic metres a minute. Find the rate of change of height when the tank is half full.
Now the Volume V = π r 2 h and I can determine the rate of change in Volume is d V / d t = π r 2 d h / d t and the rate of change of height is d h / d t = 1 / π r 2 × d V / d t
Using that formula I can determine that the water is rising at a rate of 3 / 25 π m/min. But I cannot seem to figure out how to factor in height so that it is half full. Or is this wrong?

Rate of change of surface area of a sphere given the rate of change of the radius
Air is pumped into a spherical balloon such that the radius of the balloon increases at the rate of 1 20 π cm/s when the radius is 8.5cm. Find the rate of change of the surface area of the balloon at this instant.
How do I do this? I still don't really understand how rate of change works here.

Rate of Change Questions?
I have this equation for a rate of change problem below
s = t 4 4 t 3 20 t 2 + 20 t , t 0
The question asks me
At what time does the particle have a velocity of 20 m/s?
How do i solve this? Basically what steps do I take to find at what time the particle has that velocity?

Maximum rate of change for a data
I came up with a question when studying calculus. Suppose that we have a data set, say v = v ( t ). Assume that we know about their physical meaning and consequently we know that function V fits the data well. Now the maximum rate of change of the data is better approximated by:
a) maximum rate of change of V
b) average rate of change of V
c) we cannot say
I think (b) gives a more reasonable value. But is there a reasoning behind that? or other options?

Average rate of change?
How would I figure the following problem out?
Find the average rate of change of g ( x ) = x 2 + 3 x + 7 from x=5 to x=9My thought is that I would plug in 5 and 9 for the x values to get the y values. And the use the slope formula y 2 y 1 x 2 x 1

What is the unit of this "Rate of Change"?
the function f ( x ) = 0.9 x
So, the rate of change of y with respect to x is 0.9.
My question is, what is the unit of this Rate of Change?
0.9 per x?
