Question 05 

When a person breathes, the volume of air in the lungs may be modelled by a function of the form where V is the volume in millilitres and t is time in seconds. Suppose the minimum and maximum volumes are 1400 and 3400 ml respectively, and the maximum rate of change of V is 1200 ml/sec. What is the period of V(t)?
