If π is the volume of a cube with edge length π₯ and the cube expands as time passes, give an expression for ππ ππ‘.
00:00:13.540 --> 00:00:16.730
So first of all, Iβm gonna take a look at what weβve actually given in the question.
00:00:17.910 --> 00:00:22.370
We know that π is the volume and π₯ is the edge length.
00:00:23.590 --> 00:00:27.120
So therefore, we can say that π is equal to π₯ cubed.
00:00:27.120 --> 00:00:29.580
So the volume is equal to π₯ cubed.
00:00:29.890 --> 00:00:36.550
And thatβs because if we tried to work out the volume of a cube, all we do is we actually cube one of the lengths of the sides.
00:00:36.800 --> 00:00:38.970
Okay, great, so weβve got our first little expression there.
00:00:40.230 --> 00:00:43.530
So now, the next step would actually to be work out ππ ππ₯.
00:00:43.530 --> 00:00:49.620
So we actually gonna differentiate the value that we had earlier which was that π is equal to π₯ cubed.
00:00:51.160 --> 00:00:54.300
So ππ ππ₯ can be equal to three π₯ squared.
00:00:55.590 --> 00:01:03.590
And weβll reach that because if weβre multiplying the exponent by the coefficient, thatβs three multiplied by one which gives us three.
00:01:03.890 --> 00:01:09.600
And then, all weβve done is weβve actually reduced the exponent by one because the three minus one which gives us two.
00:01:09.630 --> 00:01:10.950
So we get three π₯ squared.
00:01:12.020 --> 00:01:24.070
So now as weβre actually looking to find ππ ππ‘, weβre now gonna use the chain rule, which states that ππ¦ ππ₯ is equal to ππ¦ ππ‘ multiplied by ππ‘ ππ₯.
00:01:24.690 --> 00:01:37.500
Well, in our case, weβre gonna get ππ ππ‘ because this is like ππ¦ ππ₯, which is going to be equal to ππ ππ₯ multiplied by ππ₯ ππ‘.
00:01:37.500 --> 00:01:48.150
And we get that because if we take a look, our ππ₯ terms will actually cancel out because we will have a ππ₯ on the numerator, ππ₯ on the denominator.
00:01:48.390 --> 00:01:50.280
So then, weβll gonna get ππ ππ‘.
00:01:50.670 --> 00:01:55.950
Okay, we already know ππ ππ₯ from our previous step.
00:01:57.550 --> 00:02:00.010
However, we donβt know ππ₯ ππ‘.
00:02:01.580 --> 00:02:15.300
So therefore, ππ ππ‘ what it actually means in practice, which is the change in the volume of the cube over time, is equal to three π₯ squared ππ₯ ππ‘.
