In this lecture you will learn about Exponential Growth and Decay. First you will begin with Decay and such concepts such as Fixed Percentage and Rate of Decay, followed by the Scientific Model of Decay known as Exponential Decay. Then, you will move onto Growth and the Scientific Model of Growth known as Exponential Growth.
If growth or decay
is occurring by a fixed percentage during each period of time, use
the formula y = a(1 + r)t or y = a(1 r)t.
For scientific applications, use the formula y = aekt or
y = ae-kt.
