He wonders how fast the slipped distance changes with respect to the angle made by the wall and the stick. What is known: The length of the stick is 53 in. The angle made by the wall and the stick is θ = 45o. The slipped distance is y. Questions How fast does the slipped distance change with respect to the angle that is made by the wall and the stick is 45o or π/4? Approach Derivative with respect to angle can be used in this case to calculate the rate of slippage.
