What prevents population from continuously growing exponentially?
Lack of food or agriculture. Aside from that it should continue to grow.

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 …at one time or you need to add and test more frequently. Also, if you have a plastered pool the lime in the cement is demanding more acid to balance the water. Ken (MORE)
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 ! ;/
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. This decreases the size of the head so it can travel through the birth canal. After that it increases in mass through the addition of …more neuroglia cells, myelination, and connections between neurons. (MORE)

Well, if there are more people in the future, there will be less . Food, . Water, . Jobs, . Space, . Air, . Animals, . Money, . Houses. But how will we survive without this stuff. Answer: We won't. Especially the poorer countries like Zimbabwe that are already struggling
This can be stated in different equivalent ways, for example: . You can express the growth (the size of the population as a function of time) as a mathematical function Ae Bt , for some constants A and B (t is the time). . The population doubles every so-and-so-many years (or minutes, for microbes…). . The rate of increase of the population is proportional to the size of the population. (MORE)
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).
Exponential growth (including exponential decay) occurs when the growth rate of a mathematical function is proportional to the function's current value. In the case of a discrete domain of definition with equal intervals it is also called geometric growth or geometric decay (the function values form… a geometric progression).. Exponential growth is said to follow an exponential law; the simple-exponential growth model is known as the Malthusian growth model. For any exponentially growing quantity, the larger the quantity gets, the faster it grows. An alternative saying is 'The rate of growth is directly proportional to the present size'. The relationship between the size of the dependent variable and its rate of growth is governed by a strict law of the simplest kind: direct proportion. It is proved in calculus that this law requires that the quantity is given by the exponential function, if we use the correct time scale. This explains the name.. The graph illustrates how exponential growth (green) surpasses both linear (red) and cubic (blue) growth (MORE)
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. The people at the bottom of the economic ladder suffer disproportionately (both in $ and as a %), compared with the people at the top. The only p…eople at the bottom who do really well out of it are the tradesmen, and then of course there are the banks (but then, they do well whatever happens, even when it's their fault!). (MORE)
The exponential model of population growth describes the idea thatpopulation growth expands rapidly rather than in a linear fashion,such as human reproduction. Cellular reproduction fits theexponential model of population growth.
In order to have exponential growth there must be sufficientresources to thrive. The problem with exponential growth is thatsince the world is finite at some point there will beoverpopulation.
Population growth is limited by the supply of resources. At some point there will no longer be enough resources, such as land, fresh water, top soil to grow food in, fuel to transport the food, building materials etc to support the growing population.
There are 3 main conditions that will allow a population to growexponentially. These 3 factors are constant temperature, unlimitedfood, and unlimited water.
A population that is growing exponentially in the absence of limiting factors can be illustrated by?
n^x A steep climbing curve. Almost a straight upward line. e^x also another function that illustrates this.
The human population began to grow exponentially in the modern agedue to civilization. This resulted to less working times and moreresting periods with improved means of cultivation which producemore food for the increasing families.
The human population is growing exponentially because of the natureof humanity and the increased production of food. The growth issupported by enough food at this time although this may change inthe long term.
It is simple ya. As the rate of growth is directly proportional to the number present then it will be considered as exponential growth. It is quite true in any living being.
No, they slowly grow from a birth weight of about 200 to 250 pounds(90-115 kg) to around . At maturity (about 8 to 13 years) they canweigh around 7700 pounds (3500 kg). Individuals have been known toweigh as much as 26,000 pounds (12000 kg) by their twenties. Asian elephants are smaller, and the Su…matran elephant is abouthalf the size of the African species. (MORE)
Rodents and lagomorphs both have continuously growing incisors. Lagomorphs and herbivorous rodents also have continuously growing molars. The tusks of many mammals, such as elephants, wild boars, and walruses, also grow continuously.
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…opulation can take from its environment. This limitation -- the point that a population exceeds its means -- is called the carrying capacity. Sometimes an exponentially-growing population will grow past its carrying capacity for a time before dipping back down and leveling off. In some cases (like with humans), the carrying capacity can be pushed further and further with adaption (or with humans-- innovation). (MORE)
Sooner or later there won't be enough food - or enough of some other resource - to sustain an exponential growth.
If the population grows exponentially and members in the population expect to maintain their current standard of living then either resources (or their utilisation) will need to grow exponentially. Many resources (land, fresh water, minerals, etc) are finite and, although new sources may be found… for some, sustained exponential growth in the resources is unlikely. More efficient use will defer the point at which shortages appear. One major concern is that mankind will not be prepared to compromise significantly on living standards, and so one possible consequence is war. (MORE)
When there are enough resources to support this growth, and when there is nothing else that hinders growth (such as pandemics).
Exponential growth takes place in Bacteria under ideal conditions. It means a rapid increase in population but actually it is doubling of population in a short time.Under ideal condition generation time of bacteria is just 20 minutes i.e. just after 20 minutes no. of Bacteria is doubled. Init…ially term used for rapid bacterial growth was logarithmic growth but that proved to be wrong. Term Exponential growth may also be used for population of higher animals but doubling time is much larger as compared to bacteria. (MORE)
plant populations, like any other populations are limited by resources. the amount of space, sunlight, water, soil nutrients, predators, etc can all have affects that limit the population size
everyone will not have enough food people will try to move to the moon and the amount of homeless and poor will increase dramatically because the governments will not be able to provide . (starvation) NOvaNEt.
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
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)!
It is one thing to conquer and empire but another thing to sustainone. Alexander's empire stopped expanding because when, after a lot ofhardships, his army reached the western edges of India, the menrefused to continue eastwards. They were tired of conquest andwanted to get home. They returned to …Persia (after a terrible forced march through thedesert, where many died) which was intended to be the centre of hisEmpire. On the way there, Alexander's lover Hephastion died,possibly poisoned, possibly from poor medical care after a bout ofdysentery. The loss seems to have driven Alexander partly insane - at onepoint he seems to have tried to starve himself to death. Herecovered, and devised an immense state funeral for Hephastion, butwas never the same again. Although he was still young he had also received terrible injuriesduring the various battles he fought on his journey eastwards -including one where an arrow pierced his lung, shattering the riband permanently damaging his breathing. He had recovered andcontinued to lead his army from the front, but it was taking itstoll too. When Alexander reached Babylon he caught a fever, possibly due tobad water, refused treatment, stayed up late drinking with his men(a Macedonian custom) and developed an infection from which he soondied. Overwork, grief and much damage to his body probably playedits part. He had no child and no obvious successor. His lesser wife (thedaughter of of Sogdian king) was certainly pregnant, and gave birthto his son some months later. His chief wife (the daughter of thelast Persian emperor Darius) may have been pregnant, too, but shewas quickly murdered. His half-brother, Philip, was thought to bean idiot: he was there with the army but never considered as aserious successor. If Hephastion had survived, he (assecond-in-command) would probably have had a good chance of takingover, but he was dead. Without the dynamic, charismatic leader, the Empire he had onlyjust put together collapsed. Each of his generals grabbed what hecould, and they all fought each other. One of them kidnappedAlexander's surviving wife and his son, and later had themmurdered. The Hellenistic empire became a number of different,often warring, empires, each of them ruled by a Greek-speakingdynasty descended from one or other Macedonian war leader. The most successful was Ptolomy, who grabbed Egypt - and kept it.His line lasted until the rise of the Roman Empire. Cleopatra was adescendant of his. (MORE)
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…f hair growth (and nail growth), but both are an illusion. (MORE)
In a given period of time it will double in size/number. Like in the film gremlins. If they increase every minute and you start with 1 gremlin, then after a minute you would have 2, then 4, then 8 etc.
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.
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.
because people are being born everyday so there are a lot of people in the world i hope that answered your question :D
Because of Limiting Factors (environmental factors that prevent a population from increasing). Biotic Limiting Factors = Living organisms; Abiotic Limiting Factors = Nonliving organisms. Other factors include: death rate, birth rate, Carrying Capacity, Predation

No- but the sugar in the grains of fresh corn begin to change to starch after it is picked. That is why the freshest sweet corn tastes best.
Yes, most males grow a lot until the age of 18. But even after that, you may continue to grow until you are 21 years old. You do most of your growing during Puberty and maybe a little after. If you finish puberty at 18 you may grow a little bit more in the next year or two, but not a significant a…mount. Also, as puberty is associated with growing from a child into an adult, puberty may not be over until you have finished growing. Everyone is different. (MORE)
In Mexico and Central America, the population grows due to a large birth rate. In the Caribbean, population grows from immigration (many slaves were brought from Africa and Europeans also settled here) as well as birth rate. And in Canada and the US, population has grown mainly due to immigration (m…ainly from Europe, but today from Latin America and Asia) and birth rate too. (MORE)
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.
No, because of limiting factors and carrying capacity, Those refrain the population from exceeding indefinitely .
It is possible for countries such as the US to continue to increase in population and/or in Gross Domestic Product; they can also grow in a geographic sense by annexing other countries (no nation in the western hemisphere could defeat the US if it were to invade, for example). If we are to engage …in flights of imagination, it is not impossible in theory that the US will colonize the moon, Mars, the asteroid belt, etc., and expand into outer space, which offers tremendously more resources than those of the planet Earth, although in all honesty I do not expect this to actually happen. And for nations that remain limited by the planet Earth, there is only so much room, and so many resources, and eventually it is impossible to grow any further. The planet Earth presently has a population of about seven billion people, many of whom do not eat well. If the population were to increase to twenty billion, I guarantee that there would be mass starvation. There is only so much food that the planet can produce. Growth does not continue indefinitely.

If it continues, the country's resources will be degrading and at last there will be a demand in food and resources.
Improvements in health and living conditions meant that there werefewer infant deaths and people who survived childhood mortalityalso lived to a greater age.
Israel has grown in size twice since it declared independence in1948. The first time it grew was as a result of the armistices thatended the Arab-Israeli War of 1948-9. The borders expanded from theUN Partition Plan to the places where the soldiers stood on the dayof the armistice. These have become… the de jure borders of Israelto this day (according to the International Community). Israelexpanded once more in 1967 when it conquered six neighboringterritories (Sinai Peninsula, Gaza Strip, East Jerusalem, WestBank, Eastern border of the Sea of Galilee, and the Golan Heights)from its belligerent Arab neighbors in a preemptive war. However,according to UNSC Resolution 242, Israel could only hold onto thoseterritories pending a final peace treaty. In 1979, Israel devolved the Sinai Peninsula to Egypt for peace. In1993, Israel devolved part of the Gaza Strip to the PLO for peaceand devolved the remainder of it to the PA (the successor to thePLO) in 2005. In 1994, Israel devolved parts of the West Bank tothe PLO in accordance with a peace treaty with Jordan. Contrary towhat is assumed in the question, Israel has actually been shrinkingin terms of what areas it controls since 1967. (MORE)
Almost. Mathematical exponential growth is theoretical. There are certain restrictions to such. Social awareness, modern medicine, food supply etc., restrict true exponential growth.
