|Module 19 - Exponential Growth and Decay|
|Introduction | Lesson 1 | Lesson 2 | Lesson 3 | Self-Test|
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.
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:
