The rate of change of P with respect to h is proportional to p.
p=3 when h=0
p=2 when h=10
p=? when h=50
So far I know to take the derivative of P but I am terrible at word problems and don't know how to set up the equation. Any pointers would help. For example, I get confused when I see things like "with respect to". Any help at all would be appreaciated.
Nothing in my manual or text book even briefly alludes to any of this. . . is there any way of actually mathematically figuring the dp/dh=kp as the P=p0ekh at this level? I can't find any relevant examples and the solutions are not given in the text.
sound like you do not have the requisite knowledge to solve this problem.
