51. Using the Law of Exponential Change in Section 6.4 with appropriate changes of variables, the solution to the differential equation is L ( x ) 5 L 0 e 2 kx , where L 0 5 L (0) is the surface intensity. We know 0.5 5 e 2 18 k , so k 5 } l 2 n0 1 . 8 5 } and our equation becomes L ( x ) 5 L 0 e (ln 0.5)( x /18) 5 L 0 1 } 1 2 } 2 x /18 . We now find the depth where the intensity is one-tenth of the surface value. 0.1 5 1 } 1 2 } 2 x /18 ln 0.1 5 } 1 x 8 } ln 1 } 1 2 } 2 x 5 } 18 ln ln 0. 0 5 .1 } < 59.8 ft You can work without artificial light to a depth of about 59.8 feet. 52.
