Natural Logs

Section 8.6


Evaluate.

Solve.


  • Carbon-14 is used to study fossil remains. It has a half-life of 5760 years. What is the age of a fossil with 1/5 of its carbon-14 remaining?

  • Medical research indicates that the risk of having a car accident increases exponentially as the concentration of alcohol in the blood increases. The risk is modeled by: R= , where x is the blood alcohol concentration and R, given as a percent, is the risk of having a car accident. What blood alcohol concentration corresponds to a 17% risk of a car accident?


  • The exponential decay model for Carbon-14 is half-life of 5760 years. What is the age of a fossil with 1/5 of its carbon-14 remaining?

  • Prehistoric cave paintings were discovered in a cave in France. The paint contained 15% of the orginal carbon14. Estimate the age of the paintings.
