• Slide 2
• 8.2 Exponential Decay Goal 1: I will graph exponential decay functions. Goal 2: I will use exponential decay functions to model real-life examples.
• Slide 3
• Where is this used? Value of used cars radioactive decay Caffeine in body
• Slide 4
• Vocabulary exponential decay function: involves the equation where b is the base, and a is the initial value of y when x = 0, and b is that growth factor. y = ab x
• Slide 5
• Exponential Factors If the factor b is greater than 1, then we call the relationship exponential growth. If the factor b is less than 1, we call the relationship exponential decay.
• Slide 6
• practice Goal 1: Graph exponential decay functions State whether the function is an exponential growth or exponential decay function. growthdecay growth
• Slide 7
• Graph the function
• Slide 8
• domain: all real #s range: y > 0
• Slide 9
• Exponential Decay Models When a real-life quantity (e.g. value of car) decreases by fixed percent each time period, the amount y of the quantity after t time periods is: Where C = initial amount r = growth rate (percent written as a decimal) t = time where t 0 (1 - r) = decay factor where 1 - r < 1
• Slide 10
• Value of Car You buy a new car for \$23,000. The value decreases by 15% each year. Write an exponential decay model for the cars value. Use the model to estimate the value after 3 years.
• Slide 11
• practice An adult takes 400 mg of ibuprofen. Each hour h, the amount i of ibuprofen in the persons system decreases by about 29%. Write an exponential decay model that describes the situation. How much is left in the system after 4 hours?
• Slide 12
• Independent Practice Suppose that 100 pounds of plutonium (Pu) is deposited at a nuclear waste site. How much of it will still be radioactive in 100,000 years? Solve graphically and algebraically.
