a) Describe one method that you could use to estimate the value of e, assuming you do not know its value, and without using the "e" button on a calculator. Use only the following definition:

` e = \lim_{ n \to \infty}(1+ \dfrac{1}{n})^n, n \in \mathbb{N}`

b) Use your method to estimate the value of e, correct to two decimal places.

Q14

A 80-mg sample of protactinium-233 (Pa-223) is placed in a nuclear reactor. After 5 days, the sample has decayed to 70 mg. The amount of Pa-223 remaining in the reactor can be modelled by the function:

` N(t) = N_0 (\dfrac{1}{2}) ^{\dfrac{t}{h}}`

Here, `N(t)`

represents the amount of Pa-223, in milligrams, as a function of time, `t`

, in days; `N_0`

represents the initial amount of Pa-223, in milligrams; and `h`

represents the half-life of Pa-223, in days.

a) Determine the half-life of Pa-223.

b) Write an equation that gives the amount of Pa-223 remaining as a function of time, in terms of its half-life.

c) How fast is the sample decaying after 5 days?

, in seconds.

a) From what horizontal distance from the bottom of Kara's swing did Lee push his sister?

b) Determine the greatest speed Kara will reach and when this occurs.

c) How long will it take for Kara's maximum horizontal displacement at the top of her swing arc to diminish to 1 m? After how many swings will this occur?

d) Sketch the graph of this function.
