Solutions

Chapter 3.8, Problem 34E
To determine

To find: The derivative of the wave speed with respect to the reproductive rate r and interpret the result.

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 34E

The derivative of the wave speed with respect to the reproductive rate r is, f'(r)=Dr, which represents the rate of change of the wave speed according to the reproductive rate.

Explanation of Solution

The wave speed is given by f(r)=2Dr.

Find the derivative of the wave speed with respect to the reproductive rate r as follows,

f(r)=2(Dr)12=122(Dr)121D=D(D)12(r)12=Dr

Thus, the derivative, f'(r)=Dr, which represents the rate of change of the wave speed according to the reproductive rate.
