 Question 38533: V = C(Ro – R)R^2 where C > 0 is a constant based on individual body characteristics, Ro is the radius of the windpipe before the cough, and R is the radius of the windpipe during the cough. Find the value of R that maximizes the velocity, and state the resulting maximum velocity. I just want to confirm that I am on the right track? V = C(Ro – R)R^2 = C Ro R^2 - CR^3 V'(R)= 0 CR(2Ro - 3R) = 0, R = 0 or 2/3. I think the elgebra may not be right? Can someone please tell me if this is the right idea. Thankyou.
