The period T, in seconds, of a pendulum is given by the equation below with length, l, in meters.

T = 2pi*sqrt(l/9.8)

(a) How fast does the period increase?

need some help please, these rate problems give me trouble...

no sorry, it wants us to find dT/dl, so we're supposed to differentiate with respect to l, sorry...
