Exponential Functions Def. An exponential function with base a is a function of the form f ( x ) = a x where a is a positive constant. NOTE: For exponential function f ( x ) = a x and positive integer n , 1. If x = n , f ( x ) = 2. f (0) = 3. f ( ¡ n ) = 4. If reduced rational number x = p q for integers p and q , q > 0, then f ( x ) = 5. If x is irrational

Unformatted text preview: e is the number such that the slope of the tangent line to y = e x at x = 0 is exactly 1. NOTE: e ex. Sketch the graph of y = e x . 6-? Sketch the graph of the following: ex. y = e x 6-? Try these! ex. y = 2 e ( x +1) 6-? ex. Suppose you invest $ 1000 in an account that doubles every 8 years. What will the value of the account be in 24 years? Find a formula for the value in t years. ex. The concentration of a drug in a particular or-gan at any time t (in seconds) is given by x ( t ) = 0 : 08 + 0 : 12(1 e : 02 t ) where x ( t ) is mea-sured in grams/cubic centimeter. What is the initial concentration of the drug in the organ? Find the concentration of the drug in the organ in the long run (as t approaches innity)....
