1. A spherical snowball is melting. Its radius is decreasing at 0.2 cm per hour when the radius is 15 cm. How fast is its volume decreasing at that time?

2. A  potter forms a piece of clay into a cylinder. As he rolls it, the length, L, of the cylinder increases and the radius, r, decreases. If the length of the cylinder is increasing at 0.1 cm per second, find the rate at which the radius is changing when the radius is 1 cm and the length is 5 cm.

3. A certain quantity of gas occupies a volume of 20cc at a pressure of 1 atmosphere. The gas expands without the addition of heat, so, for some constant k, its pressure, P, and volume, V, satisfy the equation PV^{1.4}=k. (a) Find the rate of change of pressure with respect to volume. (b) The volume is increasing at 2cc/min when the volume is 30cc. At that moment, is the pressure increasing or decreasing? How fast?

4. (a) A hemispherical bowl of radius 10cm contains water to a depth of hcm. Find the radius of the surface of the water as a function of h. (b) The water level drops at a rate of 0.1 cm per hour. At the what rate is the radius of the water decreasing when the depth is 5 cm?
