A.   74.95 m/sec2 C.   49.57 m/sec2
B.   94.75 m/sec2 D.   59.47 m/sec2

Time Rates
If a quantity x is a function of time t, the time rate of change of x is given by dx/dt.

When two or more quantities, all functions of t, are related by an equation, the relation between their rates of change may be obtained by differentiating both sides of the equation with respect to t.
