Derivative of the Inverse of a Function property in words: For any point (a, b) on an invertible function, the derivative of the inverse of this function evaluated at b is equal to the reciprocal of the derivative of the function evaluated at a.
Derivative of the Inverse of a Fucntion property in symbols:
Yes, volume is an invertible function, since it passes the horizontal line test.
The inverse function of volume:
Proof: Equations

I took the derivative at the point (1, 4pi/3) and (4pi/3, 1).
Y1 and Y2 are the tangent lines.
As it shows, their slopes are reciprocals.

I chose to come to class that day. Firstly, I totally forgot we had the option to come to class or not to. Second, I think I learn better in classroom. So for my own benefit, I chose to come to the class.
