The population of a certain country is known to increase at a rate proportional to the number of people presently living in the country. If after two years the population has doubled, and after three years the population is 20,000, find an expression for the approximate population of the country at any time and estimate the number of people initially living in the country.

Given that the rate of increase of population of country is proportional to thenumber of people livling presently in the country
\(\displaystyle{\frac{{{d}{P}}}{{{\left.{d}{t}\right.}}}}={k}{P}\), where P is the population
k is the proportionality constant
Let \(\displaystyle{P}_{{{0}}}\) be the population initially
Given that at 2 years the population is dobuled
Given that at 3 years the population is 20000
Therefore the equation is \(\displaystyle{P}={P}_{{{0}}}{e}^{{{\frac{{{\ln{{\left({2}\right)}}}}}{{{2}}}}{t}}}\)
Not exactly what you’re looking for?

Rate of increase of population is proportional to Number of people living presently
After 2 years, Population has doubled
After 3 years, Population \(\displaystyle={20000}\)
Let P be population in the country.
Thus, according to the question:
\(\displaystyle{\frac{{{d}{P}}}{{{\left.{d}{t}\right.}}}}={k}{P}\), where k is any constant.
When \(\displaystyle{t}={0}\) years, \(\displaystyle{P}={P}_{{{0}}}\), where \(\displaystyle{P}_{{{0}}}\) is the initial population.
Thus, \(\displaystyle{{\ln{{P}}}_{{{0}}}=}{0}+{C}\)
When \(\displaystyle{t}={2}\) years, \(\displaystyle{P}={2}{P}_{{{0}}}\)
When \(\displaystyle{t}={3}\) years, \(\displaystyle{P}={20000}\)
So, initial population, \(\displaystyle{P}_{{{0}}}={7072}\)

Let make N represent the population of the country at any given time t and \(N_{o}\) as the initial population.
where k is the constant of proportionality.
\(\int \frac{1}{N}dN=k \int dt\)
\(\ln N=kt+C\)
For \(t=0, N = N_{o}\)
Therefore, \(N=N_{o}e^{kt}\) (1)
For \(t=2\) yrs, \(N=2No\)
Substitute these values into (1)
\(k=\frac{1}{2} \ln 2\)
\(k = 0.347\)
Therefore (1) becomes
\(N=N_{o} e^{0.347t}\) (2)
For \(t = 3\) yrs, \(N = 20,000\)
Substitute these values into (2)
Therefore the number of people initially living in the country is 7062

The dominant form of drag experienced by vehicles (bikes, cars,planes, etc.) at operating speeds is called form drag. Itincreases quadratically with velocity (essentially because theamount of air you run into increase with v and so does the amount of force you must exert on each small volume of air). Thus
where A is the cross-sectional area of the vehicle and \(\displaystyle{C}_{{d}}\) is called the coefficient of drag.
Part A:
Consider a vehicle moving with constant velocity \(\displaystyle\vec{{{v}}}\). Find the power dissipated by form drag.
Express your answer in terms of \(\displaystyle{C}_{{d}},{A},\) and speed v.
Part B:
A certain car has an engine that provides a maximum power \(\displaystyle{P}_{{0}}\). Suppose that the maximum speed of thee car, \(\displaystyle{v}_{{0}}\), is limited by a drag force proportional to the square of the speed (as in the previous part). The car engine is now modified, so that the new power \(\displaystyle{P}_{{1}}\) is 10 percent greater than the original power (\(\displaystyle{P}_{{1}}={110}\%{P}_{{0}}\)).
Assume the following:
The top speed is limited by air drag.
The magnitude of the force of air drag at these speeds is proportional to the square of the speed.
By what percentage, \(\displaystyle{\frac{{{v}_{{1}}-{v}_{{0}}}}{{{v}_{{0}}}}}\), is the top speed of the car increased?
Express the percent increase in top speed numerically to two significant figures.
