Bases other than e
Lecture no. 27 from the course: Understanding Calculus: Problems, Solutions and Tips
Taught by Professor Bruce H. Edwards | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Mathematics Courses
Extend the use of the logarithmic and exponential functions to bases other than e, exploiting this approach to solve a problem in radioactive decay. Also learn to find the derivatives of such functions, and see how e emerges in other mathematical contexts, including the formula for continuous compound interest.
