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.

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 = ...
This solution helps estimate the total amount of natural gas consumed during the 20-year period from 1990 to 2010. Step by step calculations are provided.
