# The volume of a cube with sides of length #s# is given by #V =s^3#. What is the rate of change of the volume with respect to #s# when # s# is 6 centimeters?

This is the volume function that we have:

The first derivative of this function, which is also known as the gradient function because it provides the gradient of a tangent line drawn at the given point, is used to find the rate of change.

To find the rate of change of the volume ((V)) with respect to the side length ((s)) when (s) is 6 centimeters, we take the derivative of the volume formula (V = s^3) with respect to (s). Then, we substitute (s = 6) into the derivative.

The derivative of (V) with respect to (s) is: [ \frac{dV}{ds} = 3s^2 ]

Substituting (s = 6): [ \frac{dV}{ds} = 3(6)^2 ] [ \frac{dV}{ds} = 3(36) ] [ \frac{dV}{ds} = 108 ]

Therefore, when the side length (s) is 6 centimeters, the rate of change of the volume with respect to (s) is 108 cubic centimeters per centimeter.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
