Exponential Growth and Decay
Exponential Growth and Decay (examples, solutions, worksheets, videos, activities)
Exponential functions are right around the corner for my math classes. I always look forward to this time of year. The best part about exponential functions is the real-life aspect. Students are more interested if they can make a connection. Draw your students in and they will enjoy this topic without realizing how much they are learning.
Applications of radioactivity
Use this decay calculator to easily calculate the time elapsed since the beginning of the decay, or calculate the original quantity, half-life or remaining quantity of a substance subject to radioactive decay, based on any of the three parameters. Convert half-life to mean lifetime or decay constant, and vice versa by entering any of the three values in its respective field. Our versatile radioactive decay calculator supports many different time units and automatically converts them if the time unit you measure the time elapsed is different than the time unit you enter the half-time, decay constant or mean lifetime in.
Mathematics Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for people studying math at any level and professionals in related fields. It only takes a minute to sign up. Connect and share knowledge within a single location that is structured and easy to search. I've spent over an hour researching Carbon decay for a Calculus problem, but I have one main problem when solving them: how do you solve for the k value decay constant?
