A plane flying horizontally at an altitude of \( 1 mi \) and a speed of \( 500 mi / h \) passes directly over a radar station. Find the rate at which the distance from the plane to the station is increasing when it is \( 2 mi \) away from the station. 

(a) What quantities are given in the problem? (b) What is the unknown? (c) Draw a picture of the situation for any time \( t \) . (d) Write an equation that relates the quantities. (e) Finish solving the problem. 

Answer

(a) The plane's altitude is \( 1 mi \) and its speed is \( 500 mi / h \) . 

(b) The rate at which the distance from the plane to the station is increasing when the plane is \( 2 \) mi from the station .

(c) 

(d) \( y ^ { 2 } = x ^ { 2 } + 1 \) 

(e) \( 250 \sqrt { 3 } mi / h\)
