Course: Calculus I
Topic: Derivatives
Subtopic: Related Rate Applications

Overview

Related rate applications occur then the rates of two or more things are being compared in relation to one another. For example, if two vehicles traveling perpendicularly are approaching an intersection, they of course have rates of approach toward the intersection, but at what rate are they approaching each other?

Objectives

By the end of this topic you should know and be prepared to be tested on:
