Hi, I'm working on a related rates problem, and I need to find the derivative of the volume of a cone.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So the equation is:

V = (1/3) (pi) (r^2) (h)

I'm not sure how to find the derivative. Would the whole thing turn out to be 0? Or do I need to use the product rule?

Please help!

Thanks
