432 ❙❙❙❙ CHAPTER 7 INVERSE FUNCTIONS 57. Under certain circumstances a rumor spreads according to the equation where is the proportion of the population that knows the rumor at time and and are positive constants. [In Sec- tion 10.5 we will see that this is a reasonable model for .] (a) Find . (b) Find the rate of spread of the rumor. ; (c) Graph for the case , with measured in hours. Use the graph to estimate how long it will take for 80% of the population to hear the rumor. ; 58. An object is attached to the end of a vibrating spring and its displacement from its equilibrium position is , where is measured in seconds and is measured in centimeters. (a) Graph the displacement function together with thefunctions and . How are thesegraphs related? Can you explain why? (b) Use the graph to estimate the maximum value of the displacement. Does it occur when the graph touches thegraph of ? (c) What is the velocity of the object when it first returns to itsequilibrium position? (d) Use the graph to estimate the time after which the displace- ment is no more than 2 cm from equilibrium. ; 59. The flash unit on a camera operates by storing charge on a capacitor and releasing it suddenly when the flash is set off. The following data describe the charge remaining on the capacitor (measured in microcoulombs, C) at time (mea- sured in seconds). (a) Use a graphing calculator or computer to find an exponen- tial model for the charge. (See Section 1.2.) (b) The derivative represents the electric current (measured in microamperes, A) flowing from the capaci- tor to the flash bulb. Use part (a) to estimate the current when s. Compare with the result of Example 2 in Section 2.1.
