A Volume/Surface Area Query in Calculus (Tanton Mathematics)


Interesting, Publisher, TANTON Mathematics, Stimulus, Video, YouTube

The derivative of the formula for the volume of a sphere gives the formule for its surface area. Is it obvious that this should be so? How about the derivative of the volume of a cube? Does it give its surface area? Well NO, and ... YES!!!
