Rate of Change of Volume of Sand in Conical Shape

Problem
A conveyor is dispersing sands which forms into a conical pile whose height is approximately 4/3 of its base radius. Determine how fast the volume of the conical sand is changing when the radius of the base is 3 feet, if the rate of change of the radius is 3 inches per minute.

A.   2π ft/min C.   3π ft/min
B.   4π ft/min D.   5π ft/min

Graph of the Function y = f(x)
The graph of a function y = f(x) may be plotted using Differential Calculus. Consider the graph shown below.
