Exponential Growth and Decay

Exponential growth and decay problems follow the model given by the equation$A\left(t\right)=P{e}^{rt}$

-The model is a function of time t

-A(t) is the amount we have ater time t

-PIs the initial amount, because for t=0, notice how$A\left(0\right)=P{e}^{0\times t}=P{e}^{0}=P$

-Tis the growth or decay rate. It is positive for growth and negative for decay

Growth and decay problems can deal with money (interest compounded continuously), bacteria growth, radioactive decay. population growth etc.

So A(t) can represent any of these depending on the problem.

Practice

The growth of a certain bactenia population can be modeled by the function

$A\left(t\right)=900{e}^{0.0534}$

where A(t) is the number of bacteria and t represents the time in minutes.

What is the number of bactenia ater 15 minutes? (round to the nearest whole number of bacteria.)
