(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); I'm stuck on problem. I know x=8, y=2 and the hyp=2.87. They want the derivative of theta so am I supposed to take the derivative of theta=0.24?Code (Text):

A particle is moving along the graph of y=x^1/3.

Suppose x is increasing at the rate of 3 cm/s.

At what rate is the angle of inclination, theta, changing when x=8?

[Hint: when x=8, theta approx. 0.24 rad]
