## Homework Statement

Suppose that the velocity v(t) (in m/s) of a sky diver falling near the Earth's surface is given by the following exponential function, where time is measured in seconds.

v(t) = 55 (1-e

^{-0.18(t)})

Find the initial velocity of the sky diver and the velocity after 6 seconds.

Round your answers to the nearest whole number as necessary.

## Homework Equations

None.

## The Attempt at a Solution

I don't know what

**e**is, so I can't even attempt this. And it's an online course with no book, just an online program we have to use for everything. It doesn't tell me what

**e**is either.
