Unformatted text preview: renewables. In the past century or so, the demand for energy and power has been increasing at a rate r per unit time. Suppose this demand is met by a finite energy resource that has a total energy content, Q, and this historical growth rate holds into the future. 3. If humanity began using this finite resource at time t=0 and the power demand at t=0 was P , find an expression that gives the total energy used up to a time, t. 4. Find the length of time T that is required to exhaust the finite resource Q....
