1 354 5 Eponential and Logarithmic Functions Most of the functions we have considered so far have been polnomial and rational functions, with a few others involving roots or powers of polnomial or rational functions. The general class of functions defined b means of the algebraic operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and the taking of powers and roots on variables and constants are called algebraic functions. In this chapter we define and investigate the properties of two new and important tpes of functions called eponential functions and logarithmic functions. These functions are not algebraic, but are members of another class of functions called transcendental functions. The eponential functions and logarithmic functions are used in describing and solving a wide variet of real-world problems, including growth of populations of people, animals, and bacteria; radioactive deca; growth of mone at compound interest; absorption of light as it passes through air, water, or glass; and magnitudes of sounds and earthquakes. We consider applications in these areas plus man more in the sections that follow. SECTION 5- Eponential Functions Eponential Functions Basic Eponential Graphs Additional Eponential Properties Applications In this section we define eponential functions, look at some of their important properties including graphs and consider several significant applications. Eponential Functions Let s start b noting that the functions f and g given b f() and g() are not the same function. Whether a variable appears as an eponent with a constant base or as a base with a constant eponent makes a big difference. The function g is a quadratic function, which we have alread discussed. The function f is a new tpe of function called an eponential function. Man students, if asked to graph an eponential function such as f(), would not hesitate at all. The would likel make up a table b assigning integers to, plot the resulting points, and then join these points with a smooth curve, as shown in Figure.

2 5- Eponential Functions 355 FIGURE f (). 0 f() f() The onl catch is that we have not defined for all real numbers. We know what 5, 3, /3, 3/5,.4, and 3.5 mean because we have defined p for an rational number p, but what does mean? The question is not eas to answer at this time. In fact, a precise definition of must wait for more advanced courses, where we can show that, if b is a positive real number and is an real number, then b names a real number, and the graph of f() is as indicated in Figure. We also can show that for irrational, b can be approimated as closel as we like b using rational number approimations for. Since , for eample, the sequence.4,.4,.44,... approimates, and as we use more decimal places, the approimation improves. DEFINITION Eponential Function The equation f() b b 0, b defines an eponential function for each different constant b, called the base. The independent variable ma assume an real value. Thus, the domain of f is the set of all real numbers, and it can be shown that the range of f is the set of all positive real numbers. We require the base b to be positive to avoid imaginar numbers such as ( ) /.

3 356 5 Eponential and Logarithmic Functions Basic Eponential Graphs EXPLORE-DISCUSS Compare the graphs of f() 3 and g() b plotting both functions on the same coordinate sstem. Find all points of intersection of the graphs. For which values of is the graph of f above the graph of g? Below the graph of g? Are the graphs of f and g close together as? As? Discuss. It is useful to compare the graphs of and ( ) b plotting both on the same coordinate sstem, as shown in Figure (a). The graph of f() b b [Fig. (b)] looks ver much like the graph of the particular case, and the graph of f() b 0 b [Fig. (b)] FIGURE Basic eponential graphs b 0 b b b 4 4 DOMAIN (, ) RANGE (0, ) (a) looks ver much like the graph of ( ). Note in both cases that the ais is a horizontal asmptote for the graph. The graphs in Figure suggest the following important general properties of eponential functions, which we state without proof: (b) Basic Properties of the Graph of f() b, b 0, b. All graphs pass through the point (0, ). b 0 for an permissible base b.. All graphs are continuous, with no holes or jumps. 3. The ais is a horizontal asmptote. 4. If b, then b increases as increases. 5. If 0 b, then b decreases as increases. 6. The function f is one-to-one.

4 5- Eponential Functions 357 Propert 6 implies that an eponential function has an inverse, called a logarithmic function, which we will discuss in Section 5-3. A calculator ma be used to create an accurate table of values from which the graph of an eponential function is drawn. Eample illustrates the process. (Of course, we ma bpass the creation of a table of values with a graphing utilit, which graphs the function directl.) EXAMPLE Graphing Multiples of Eponential Functions Use integer values of from 3 to 3 to construct a table of values for (4 ), and then graph this function. Solution Use a calculator to create the table of values shown below. Then plot the points, and join these points with a smooth curve (see Fig. 3). FIGURE 3 (4 ) Matched Problem Repeat Eample for ( 4 ) (4 ). Additional Eponential Properties Eponential functions, whose domains include irrational numbers, obe the familiar laws of eponents we discussed earlier for rational eponents. We summarize these eponent laws here and add two other important and useful properties.

Applications We now consider three applications that utilize eponential functions in their analsis: population growth, radioactive deca, and compound interest. Population growth and compound interest are eamples of eponential growth, while radioactive deca is an eample of negative eponential growth. Our first eample involves the growth of populations, such as people, animals, insects, and bacteria. Populations tend to grow eponentiall and at different rates. A convenient and easil understood measure of growth rate is the doubling time that is, the time it takes for a population to double. Over short periods of time the doubling time growth model is often used to model population growth: P P 0 t/d

6 5- Eponential Functions 359 where P Population at time t P 0 Population at time t 0 d Doubling time Note that when t d, P P 0 d/d P 0 and the population is double the original, as it should be. We use this model to solve a population growth problem in Eample 3. EXAMPLE 3 Population Growth Meico has a population of around 00 million people, and it is estimated that the population will double in ears. If population growth continues at the same rate, what will be the population: (A) 5 ears from now? (B) 30 ears from now? Calculate answers to 3 significant digits. Solutions We use the doubling time growth model: 500 P (millions) P P 0 t/d Substituting P 0 00 and d, we obtain 400 P 00( t/ ) See Figure (A) Find P when t 5 ears: 00 P 00( 5/ ) Years FIGURE 4 P 00( t/ ) 50 t 64 million people (B) Find P when t 30 ears: Use a calculator. P 00( 30/ ) 69 million people Use a calculator. Matched Problem 3 The bacterium Escherichia coli (E. coli) is found naturall in the intestines of man mammals. In a particular laborator eperiment, the doubling time for E. coli is found to be 5 minutes. If the eperiment starts with a population of,000 E. coli and there is no change in the doubling time, how man bacteria will be present: (A) In 0 minutes? (B) In 5 hours? Write answers to 3 significant digits.

7 360 5 Eponential and Logarithmic Functions EXPLORE-DISCUSS The doubling time growth model would not be epected to give accurate results over long periods of time. According to the doubling time growth model of Eample 3, what was the population of Meico 500 ears ago at the height of Aztec civilization? What will the population of Meico be 00 ears from now? Eplain wh these results are unrealistic. Discuss factors that affect human populations that are not taken into account b the doubling time growth model. Our second application involves radioactive deca, which is often referred to as negative growth. Radioactive materials are used etensivel in medical diagnosis and therap, as power sources in satellites, and as power sources in man countries. If we start with an amount A 0 of a particular radioactive isotope, the amount declines eponentiall in time. The rate of deca varies from isotope to isotope. A convenient and easil understood measure of the rate of deca is the half-life of the isotope that is, the time it takes for half of a particular material to deca. In this section we use the following half-life deca model: A A 0 ( /h )t t /h A 0 where A Amount at time t A 0 Amount at time t 0 h Half-life Note that when t h, A A 0 h /h A 0 and the amount of isotope is half the original amount, as it should be. A 0 EXAMPLE 4 Radioactive Deca The radioactive isotope gallium 67 ( 67 Ga), used in the diagnosis of malignant tumors, has a biological half-life of 46.5 hours. If we start with 00 milligrams of the isotope, how man milligrams will be left after: (A) 4 hours? (B) week? Compute answers to 3 significant digits. Solutions We use the half-life deca model: Using A 0 00 and h 46.5, we obtain A A 0 ( ) t/h A 0 t/h A 00( t /46.5 ) See Figure 5.

8 5- Eponential Functions A (milligrams) (A) Find A when t 4 hours: A 00( 4/46.5 ) 69.9 milligrams Use a calculator. (B) Find A when t 68 hours ( week 68 hours): Hours FIGURE 5 A 00( t/46.5 ). t A 00( 68/46.5 ) 8.7 milligrams Use a calculator. Matched Problem 4 Radioactive gold 98 ( 98 Au), used in imaging the structure of the liver, has a halflife of.67 das. If we start with 50 milligrams of the isotope, how man milligrams will be left after: (A) da? (B) week? Compute answers to 3 significant digits. Our third application deals with the growth of mone at compound interest. This topic is important to most people and is fundamental to man topics in the mathematics of finance. The fee paid to use another s mone is called interest. It is usuall computed as a percent, called the interest rate, of the principal over a given period of time. If, at the end of a pament period, the interest due is reinvested at the same rate, then the interest earned as well as the principal will earn interest during the net pament period. Interest paid on interest reinvested is called compound interest. Suppose ou deposit \$,000 in a savings and loan that pas 8% compounded semiannuall. How much will the savings and loan owe ou at the end of ears? Compounded semiannuall means that interest is paid to our account at the end of each 6-month period, and the interest will in turn earn interest. The interest rate per period is the annual rate, 8% 0.08, divided b the number of compounding periods per ear,. If we let A, A, A 3, and A 4 represent the new amounts due at the end of the first, second, third, and fourth periods, respectivel, then A \$,000 \$, \$,000( 0.04) A A ( 0.04) [\$,000( 0.04)]( 0.04) \$,000( 0.04) A 3 A ( 0.04) [\$,000( 0.04) ]( 0.04) \$,000( 0.04) 3 P r n P r n P r n 3

9 36 5 Eponential and Logarithmic Functions A 4 A 3 ( 0.04) [\$,000( 0.04) 3 ]( 0.04) \$,000( 0.04) 4 P r n 4 What do ou think the savings and loan will owe ou at the end of 6 ears? If ou guessed A \$,000( 0.04) ou have observed a pattern that is generalized in the following compound interest formula: Compound Interest If a principal P is invested at an annual rate r compounded n times a ear, then the amount A in the account at the end of t ears is given b A P r n nt The annual rate r is epressed in decimal form. Since the principal P represents the initial amount in the account and A represents the amount in the account t ears later, we also call P the present value of the account and A the future value of the account. EXAMPLE 5 Compound Interest 5,000 A (dollars) Solution If ou deposit \$5,000 in an account paing 9% compounded dail, how much will ou have in the account in 5 ears? Compute the answer to the nearest cent. We use the compound interest formula as follows: A P r n nt 0,000 5, (365)(5) \$7,84. Use a calculator. 5,000 The graph of FIGURE 6 5 Years 0 t is shown in Figure 6. A 5, t

10 5- Eponential Functions 363 Matched Problem 5 If \$,000 is invested in an account paing 0% compounded monthl, how much will be in the account at the end of 0 ears? Compute the answer to the nearest cent. EXAMPLE 6 Visualizing Investments with a Graphing Utilit Use a graphing utilit to compare the growth of an investment of \$,000 at 0% compounded monthl with an investment of \$,000 at 5% compounded monthl. When do the two investments have the same value? Solution 0 We use the compound interest formula to epress the future value of the first investment b,000( 0.0/), and the future value of the second investment b,000( 0.05/), where is time in ears. We graph both functions and use the intersection routine of the graphing utilit to conclude that the investments have the same value when 4 ears, as shown in Figure 7. After that time the \$,000 investment has the greater value. FIGURE 7 0 Matched Problem 6 Use a graphing utilit to determine when an investment of \$5,000 at 6% compounded quarterl has the same value as an investment of \$4,000 at 0% compounded dail.
