A quantity has the value P at time t seconds and is decreasing at a rate proportional to sqrt(P).

a) By forming and solving a suitable differential equation, show that P= (a - bt)^2 , where a and b are constants.

Given that when t= 0, P = 400,

b) find the value of a.

Given also that when t= 30, P = 100,

c) find the value of P when t = 50.
