1 Section 8.2 More exponential functions Objectives circle6 Graph translations of exponential functions circle6 Write a radioactive decay function circle6 Understand the number “e” and understand how to apply it to interest problems Review – Graph circle6 Now graph ( ) x y 2 2 1 = ( ) x y 2 2 1 - = To graph more complicated exponential functions, we can use a parent function circle6 Use a parent function to graph the given function. Label the horizontal asymptote. 3 2 1 8 2 + = + x y RADIOACTIVE DECAY circle6 The half life of a radioactive substance is the time it takes for half of the material to decay. circle6 Hospitals use different kinds of radioactive elements for imaging; one of these is technetium-99m, whose half-life is 6 hours. Let’s make a table showing the amount of a 100 mg sample remaining at the end of each 6 hour interval for 36 hours. Writing a Model for radioactive decay circle6 Let’s write an exponential function to find the amount of technetium-99 m
