One type of Iodine disintegrates continuously at a constant rate of 8.6% per day. Suppose the original amount,P0, is 10 grams, and let be measured in days. Because the Iodine is decaying continuously at a constant rate, we use the model P=P0ekt for the decay equation, where k is the rate of continuous decay. Using the given information, write the decay equation for this type of Iodine.

The model of the decay equation is given by P=P0ekt Here P0=10 grams of iodine k=rate of continuous rate=8.6 { negative sign implies the decay} Which implies k=0.086 t is measured in days Therefore, the decay equation for this type of Iodine is P=10e0.086t
