## How do you calculate Time to Steady State?

Hey,

Can someone explain to me how you calculate time to steady rate? Or provide a website that explains it? Not having much luck :(

Thanks!

 What steady state are you talking about? It is impossible to comment without knowing what the context is.
 Admin No matter what the context is, if you don't start from the steady state you will never exactly reach it - you can get as close as you want, but you won't get there, ever. This is just math - in most cases the distance from the steady state will diminish exponentially. So you have to start defining how close is close enough.
