2. EARTHQUAKES In 1906, San Francisco experienced a major earthquake of magnitude 8.3. In
1989, another major quake hit the area with a magnitude of 7.1. The amount of energy E, in ergs,
an earthquake releases is related to its Richter scale magnitude M by the equation log E = 11.8 +
1.5M. How much more energy did the 1906 quake release than the 1989 quake?

1. RECREATION A particular chemical must be added to a swimming pool at regular intervals
because it is released from the water into the air at the rate of 5% per hour. Sixteen ounces of the
chemical is added at 8 am. At what time will three–fourths of this chemical be gone from the
pool?
2. Exponential Decay of the Form y = ae–kt. CHEMISTRY The half–life of a radioactive
substance is the time it takes for half of the atoms of the substance to decay. Each element has a
unique half–life. Radon–222 has a half–life of about 3.8 days, while thorium–234 has a half–life
of about 24 days. Find the value of k for each element and compare their equations for decay.
3. In 1980, the value of farming land in a region of Wyoming was \$150 per acre. Since then, the
value has increased by exactly 0.75% per year. If the land continues to increase in value at this
rate, what will the approximate value of the land per acre be in 2005?
A. \$610
B. \$330
C. \$181
D. \$175
E. \$1098
kt
4. Exponential Growth of the Form y = ae . SAVINGS Sue invests \$1000 at 5% interest
compounded continuously and Norma invests \$1250 at 3.5% interest compounded continuously.
When interest is compounded continuously, the amount A in an account after t years is found
using the formula A = Pert, where P is the amount of principal and r is the annual interest rate. In
how many years will Sue’s account be greater than Norma’s account?
