Related Rates, Volume of liquid change

    Water is emptied from a spherical tank of radius 24 ft. The water in the tank is 8 ft deep and its level is decreasing at the rate of 2 ft/ min. At this time, what is the rate of change of the radius at the top of the water?

    have you done any work yourself? show us what you've done and we can help you.

    anyway, i would start off by finding the formula for the volume of a sphere, as well as listing down all the given information (ex. dV/dt=...)
