MATH 2413 Lab 10 Page 7 of 9 Ready for Lab 10 help If you find difficult to get answers for ready for lab question study the following question which is very similar to the one in Ready for lab section of lab 10. The Environmental Protection Agency recently investigated a spill of radioactive iodine. Measurements showed the ambient radiation levels at the site to be more than five r times the maximum acceptable limit of 0.6 millirems/hour (abbreviated mrems/hr). The EPA ordered an evacuation of the area. You will investigate several aspects of this incident using integrals and other basic information about functions. At the beginning of the investigation, the emission rate was measured to be 3.2 mrems/hr. Over the first five hours, the following data were recorded: Time(Hrs) 0 1 2 3 4 5 Radiation(mrems/Hr) 3.20000 3.18404 3.16816 3.15236 3.13664 3.12099 1. Based on the numbers in the table, calculate an upper and lower bound for the total amount of radiation (in mrems) emitted in the first five hours. (LRS and RRS) mrems 3.20000 3.18404 3.16816 3.15236 3.13664 3.12099 1/Hrs 0 1 2 3 4 5 Ans: As you can see from the graph, the amount of radiation emitted decreases with time. At 0 Hrs it was 3.2 mrems and at 1 Hrs it is at
