    Section 5.4: Problem 10 pg. 257

    10. World annual natural gas consumption, N, in millions of metric tons of oil equivalent, is approximated by N= 1770 + 53t, where t is in years since 1990.

    A. How much natural gas was consumed in 1990? In 2010?

    B. Estimate the total amount of natural gas consumed during the 20-year period from 1990 to 2010?

    11. Solar photovoltaic (PV) cells are the world's fastest growing energy source. Annual solar PV production, S, in megawatts is approximated by S = 277e0.368t , where t is in years since 2000. Estimate the total solar PV production between 2000 and 2010.

    Problem #10
    The model is N = 1770 + 53t, where N is in millions of metric tons of oil equivalent, t is in years since 1990.
    (a) In the year 1990, t = 0, then N = 1770
    In the year 2010, t = ...
