 Slide 2
 8.2 Exponential Decay Goal 1: I will graph exponential decay functions. Goal 2: I will use exponential decay functions to model reallife 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 reallife 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.
