Due to illness, I missed my calculus class and can't do the homework my friend gave me.

Q1) The volume of a sphere is increasing at a rate of 75cm^3s^-1. Find the rate at which the radius is increasing at the instant when the radius of the sphere is 15cm.

Q2) Find the gradient of the curve y=5e^3x at the point for which x=ln a, giving your answer in simplified form in terms of the constant a.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Q1) First idea was to use the chain rule?

Q2) y=5e^3x, dy/dx=15e^3x. Substitute x=ln a and rearrange to find a?
