3.4 RATES OF CHANGE RATES OF CHANGE Example 1: Find rate ofinchange the Area of a circle with If r is the measured inches of and A is measured in square inches, would be appropriate for dA/dr? respectwhat to itsunits radius. A r 2 dA 2r dr Evaluate in2/in These are units, so we do not cancel them!!! the rate of change of A at r = 5 and r = 10. dA 2 (5) 10 dr dA 2 (10 ) 20 dr MOTION Displacement of an object is how far an object has moved over time. s f (t t ) f (t ) Average velocity is the slope of a displacement vs. time graph. vavg d s1 s2 t t1 t2 MOTION Instantaneous Velocity is the velocity at a certain point. Instantaneous Velocity is the first derivative of the position function. ds v dt Speed is the absolute value of velocity. MOTION Acceleration is the rate at which a particle’s velocity changes. Measures how quickly the body picks up or loses speed. 2nd derivative of the position function!!! 2 d s a 2 dt EXAMPLE A particle moves along a line so that its position at any time t ≥ 0 is given by the function s(t) = 2t2 – 5t + 3 where s is measured in meters and t is measured in seconds. a.)

Marginal revenue is the first derivative of the revenue function, and represents an approximation of the revenue of selling one more unit.
