Applications of Derivatives

4.12 Related Rate Problems

Another application of derivatives is to solve problems where one rate is desired, and can be calculated using other rates, similar to the way that chain rule is used to find the derivative for a composite function.  We can do this by thinking of each derivative as a combination of differentials, and determine what differentials we need to find the rate that we're looking for.
