Exponential Growth is a type of growth of any quantity over a specific period of time. The term exponential is derived from the word exponent which means power. Therefore exponential growth is defined as the rate change i.e. change with respect to time of any quantity which is proportional to itself.
For example Alpha decay, the growth of bacteria

A "Student Drug Use and Health Survey" of Ontario high school students found that the percentage of students that reported serious psychosocial distress in the past month increased from 10.7% in 2013 to 17.1% in 2017.
Assuming a standard exponential growth trend, what is the annual growth rate in the percentage of students reporting serious psychosocial distress in the past month?

The close connection between logarithm and exponential functions is used often by statisticians as they analyze patterns in data where the numbers range from very small to very large values. For example, the following table shows values that might occur as a bacteria population grows according to the exponential function P(t)=50(2t):
Time t (in hours)012345678 Population P(t)501002004008001,6003,2006,40012,800
a. Complete another row of the table with values log (population) and identify the familiar function pattern illustrated by values in that row.
b. Use your calculator to find log 2 and see how that value relates to the pattern you found in the log P(t) row of the data table.
c. Suppose that you had a different set of experimental data that you suspected was an example of exponential growth or decay, and you produced a similar “third row” with values equal to the logarithms of the population data.
How could you use the pattern in that “third row” to figure out the actual rule for the exponential growth or decay model?
