When modelling exponential decay in class we did a water flow through a burette experiment. We were given the equation V(t)= V0 e^-λt and ln(V0/V)=λt Where lambda is the decay constant, V0 is the initial volume and V is the volume at any time t. What does the decay constant actually tell you in this situation? I know it's measured in 1/seconds but what does it show you?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
