    Optimization problem (Calculus)?

    The given diagram represents a conical coffee filter 16 cm in diameter and 24 cm high. It drips coffee into a cylindrical pot 12 cm in diameter.

    When the remaining coffee in the filter is 12 cm deep, its depth y is dropping at 1 cm per minute.

    At that exact time, how fast is the depth h of coffee in the pot rising?

    The answer is 4/9 cm per minute.
