Exponential Growth and Decay Function

rate of growth or decay

final amount

initial amount

Half-life

Doubling-time

1. Radium has a half-life of 1620 years. If 1.5 grams is present after 1000 years and Radium follows the law of exponential growth and decay, how much is left after 10,000 years?

2. An initial investment of \$10,000 takes 5 years to double. If interest is compounded continuously…

a. What is the initial interest rate?

b. How much will be present after 12 years?
