(i) Show that $1+\frac{\text{d}y}{\text{d}x}=\frac{2}{2x+2y+1}$.

[4]

(ii)

Hence, or otherwise, show that $\frac{{{\text{d}}^{2}}y}{\text{d}{{x}^{2}}}=-{{\left( 1+\frac{\text{d}y}{\text{d}x} \right)}^{3}}$.

[3]

(ii) Hence, or otherwise, show that $\frac{{{\text{d}}^{2}}y}{\text{d}{{x}^{2}}}=-{{\left( 1+\frac{\text{d}y}{\text{d}x} \right)}^{3}}$.

(iii)

Hence state, with one reason, whether the turning point is a maximum or a minimum.

A model of a concert hall is made up of three parts.

â€¢ The roof is modelled by the curved surface of a hemisphere of radius $r$ cm.

â€¢ The walls are modelled by the curved surface of a cylinder of radius $r$ cm and height $h$ cm.

â€¢ The floor is modelled by a circular disc of radius $r$ cm.

The three parts are joined together as shown in the diagram. The model is made of material of negligible thickness.

(i)

It is given that the volume of the model is a fixed value $k$ cm$^{3}$, and the external surface area is a minimum. Use differentiation to find the values of $r$ and $h$ in terms of $k$. Simplify your answers.

(ii)

It is given instead that the volume of the model is $200$ cm$^{3}$ and its external surface area is $180$ cm$^{2}$. Show that there are two possible values of $r$. Given also that $r<h$, find the value of $r$ and the value of $h$.
