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).

Aha... 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.!

comment Find the dimensions of a cylindrical can that will minimize the cost of the material
@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.

@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?

comment Using implicit differentiation to find a line that is tangent to a curve at a point
Thank you @J.M.. I also decided to explore using a program to solve this sort of problem. I've posted a separate answer illustrating this approach.
