# What is the exponential formula for population growth on earth?

N t =N 0 *e (r*t) N t = Future Population N 0 = Starting population r = growth rate t= number of years. Note: e is a constant equal to 2.71828 MANY missing variables.. like disease, pestilence.. war..

# High pH levels that constantly have to be lowered with acid in a salt system pool and wondering why my calcium levels continue to grow exponentially?

Answer . What is the current Ph? Current alkalinity? How much acid are you adding at one time? How many gallons of water in pool? What type of acid ~ muratic or other? These and more questions need to be addressed for a more intelligent answer. But my guess is that you are not adding enough acid (MORE)

# How long do breasts continue to grow for?

If in puberty, they grow for about 3-6 years :) average age to start breast development is 11, and it can continue until you are about 17,18 or 19 if you are a bit of a slow grower lol but it is totally normal! If you are fast then you may be done at about 14/15 or even 12!! :)

Cut tulips continue to grow because of phototropism. When cut andplaced in a vase, the tulips bend towards the light, and so theyelongate.

I'm looking for this answer too! I can't find it cuuuhh, it's HARD ! ;/

# Why does the brain continue to grow after birth?

To facilitate the movement of the baby out of the birth canal. All of the neurons have formed, but that are few neuroglia cells and the brain tissue is unmyelinated.

I think It would be fair on the countries if people only breed once every three to four years, and only have one kid. (only until the population is stable).

# Describe the exponential growth curve of a population?

Exponential growth (including exponential decay) occurs when the growth rate of a mathematical function is proportional to the function's current value.

# What happens to a population when it experiences exponential growth?

It grows faster as it gets larger, but it can't go on for ever. Crime increases (both in \$ and as a %), and social measures do not keep pace with growth.

# What is the effect of exponential growth on population?

In exponential growth, the number of individuals in a population grows rapidly. With more individuals comes an increased demand for resources, food, competition, etc. There is never an unlimited amount of such resources, so a population growing exponentially is eventually limited by the amount the p (MORE)

# When does the exponential growth of a population stop?

When the food source is depleted, a new predator is introduced, or balance is attained. The earth tends to find balance for the most part. As far as an "intelligent" species such as humans goes, probably never. or When the organisms compete

# How do you know that your bones continue to grow?

Easy. If you continue to grow in the body, arms, legs or places like that then your bones, in that specific place are growing at that time. Once you stop growing in the places you should be, your bones have reached their potential. (Although you can't see it, you grow a bit every day)!

No, it does not. Hair itself is not alive in any case. The hair follicle, in the skin, is living tissue but that's the only part or hair that is. After death, however, the body dehydrates fairly quickly, and this dehydration causes the skin to shrink and tighten. This may create the illusion o (MORE)

As the south continued to grow, it became more prosperous and moreand more regions jumped at the chance to use slaves as a cheap formof labor. While slavery was steadily declining in the northernstates, it was growing at a frightening rate in the south.

# Why can't natural populations keep growing exponentially?

Resources, such as food would need to keep up with the popu;ation growth. Also, predators that feed off the population would find their food supply increasing and would grow in numbers and that would provide a negative feedback.

In Mexico and Central America, the population grows due to a large birth rate.

Just as money can increase exponentially, it can also decrease exponentially! The USA had a small Depression in the 1880s, and the Great Depression in the 1920s. So while money can grow wildly, it can also wither and dry up.
