POPULATION
posted by Anonymous on .
If a population consists of 10,000 individuals at time t=0 years (P0), and the annual growth rate (excess of births over deaths) is 3% (GR), what will the population be after 1, 15 and 100 years (n)? Calculate the "doubling time" for this growth rate. Given this growth rate, how long would it take for this population of 10,0000 individuals to reach 1.92 million? One equation that may be useful is:
Pt = Po * (1 + {GR/100})n
Additionally, using the current world population from the census website, calculate world population in 2100 with growth rates of 2.3% and 0.5% Why is this important?
