May 1 asked Is there a more idiomatic way to solve this implicit differentiation problem? Apr 7 revised Reduce on equations involving integrals added 2 characters in body Apr 7 comment Reduce on equations involving integrals Thanks belisarius. My questions is more to do with using Reduce on the expressions involving integrals however, not so much solving the problem. (I do like your solution though).

I had been using D (partial derivative) necessitating the expression of h in terms of r. I see that Dt takes care of this. Thanks again J.M.!

I'm still curious as to how to solve it with Reduce. I added an answer which takes the approach I was looking for, but uses a rewrite kludge. Aug 6 comment Find the dimensions of a cylindrical can that will minimize the cost of the material @J.M. Wasn't familiar with Minimize... Thanks for the suggestion! However, is there a way to get the answer not in terms of Root?
