Principles of Engineering Economic Analysis , 5th edition Declining Balance (DB) Depreciation In addition to the previously defined notation, let d t = pP (1 – p ) t -1 = (1 – p ) d t -1 B t = P (1 – p ) t Where p = declining balance percentage, rate, or fraction, e.g. 1.5/ n , 2/ n * Using F=(-P)(1+p) n , p (rate) can be found *When p = 2/ n it is called double declining balance (DDB)

Principles of Engineering Economic Analysis , 5th edition Example 9.3 A surface mount placement machine is being purchased for $500,000; it has an estimated useful life of 10 years and a salvage value of $50,000 at that time. Determine the depreciation allowance for the 5 th year and the book value at the end of the 5 th year using declining balance depreciation. P = $500,000; F = $50,000; n = 10; t = 5 p =-RATE(10,,-500000,50000) = 20.5672% d 5 = 0.205672($500,000)(1.0 – 0.205672) 5-1 = $40,939.70 =DB(500000,50000,10,5) = $40,937.30 B 5 = $500,000(1.0 – 0.205672) 5 = $163,840.00

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
