Exponential decay

Exponential decay occurs when a quantity decreases by the same proportion in each given time period.

Exponential Function

An exponential function is a function whose variable is in the exponent. The general form is y=a \cdot b^{x-h}+k.

Half-life

Half-life refers to the time required for a radioactive material to decay to one-half of its initial concentration.

Model

A model is a mathematical expression or function used to describe a physical item or situation.

Newton's Law of Cooling
