Module 19  Exponential Growth and Decay 
Introduction  Lesson 1  Lesson 2  Lesson 3  SelfTest 
Introduction 
In this module you will solve differential equations that model exponential growth and decay. The applications you will study arise in the various fields of finance, thermodynamics and electronics. The differential equation y' =ky, which describes a quantity that changes at a rate proportional to itself, is the model for continuously compounded interest and charge on a capacitor which is closely related to Newton's Law of Cooling. Lesson Index: 19.1  Continuously Compounded Interest 19.2  Newton's Law of Cooling 19.3  Charge on a Capacitor After completing this module, you should be able to do the following:
