Goldstein/Schneider/Lay/Asmar, CALCULUS AND ITS APPLICATIONS , 11e – Slide 7 of 47 Exponential Growth in Application EXAMPLE EXAMPLE SOLUTION SOLUTION ( World’s Population ) The world’s population was 5.51 billion on January 1, 1993 and 5.88 billion on January 1, 1998. Assume that at any time the population grows at a rate proportional to the population at that time. In what year will the world’s population reach 7 billion? Since the “oldest” information we’re given corresponds to 1993, that will serve as our initial time. Therefore the year 1993 will be the year t = 0 and the population at time t = 0 is 5.51 (measured in billions). Therefore, the year 1998 will be year t = 5 and the population at time t = 5 is 5.88 (measured in billions). Since the population grows at a rate proportional to the size of the population, we can use the exponential growth model P ( t ) = P 0 e kt to describe the population of the world. Since P 0 is the initial quantity, P 0 = 5.51. Therefore, our formula becomes
