This is the problem as it appears in the text. "As a spherical raindrop evaporates, its volume changes at a rate proportional to its surface area A. If the constant of proportionality is 3, find the rate of change of the radius(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); rwhenr=2." My first question is does the constant of proportionality refer to [tex]\frac{dV}{dA}[/tex]? Secondly, am I being asked to find the rate of change of the radius with respect to time [tex]\frac{dr}{dt}[/tex] or another rate?
