MATH 31 LESSONS Chapter 8: Exponential and Log Functions Exponential Functions
Laws of Exponents
If the bases are the same... Keep the base the same and add the exponents
Multiply the exponents
Note: This works only for multiplication and division. It does NOT work for addition or subtraction.
Anything raised to the zeroeth power is equal to 1.
The root is on the bottom.
Sketching Exponential Functions Exponential functions are of the form where b is a positive constant
Case 1: b > 1 “Exponential Growth”
= 0 HA: y = 0
Case 2: 0 < b < 1 “Exponential Decay”
= 0 HA: y = 0
Ex. 1 (include asymptote) Try this question yourself first. Then, check the answer on the following pages.
Basic function: (decay)
Reflect about the x-axis
Translate down 4 units HA: y = 4 44
Ex. 2Evaluate: Try this question yourself first. Then, check the answer on the following pages.
Test a number that is on the left side of 2 (i.e. x = ) = 0
Derivatives of Exponential Functions Using first principles,
Using the exponential law:
Mathematicians could not determine this directly. So, they chose an indirect path. But what is?
Mathematicians realized that if this would lead to a simple derivative:
Finding the Ideal Base Mathematicians began to search for a base b that would satisfy
For inspiration, consider bases 2 and 3 : h
h Clearly, the ideal base must be between 2 and 3 (and more specifically, closer to 3).
In fact, the ideal base is known as Euler’s constant, e e Mathematicians showed that
Derivative of y = e x Recall, the derivative of y = b x was
However, if we introduce b = e :
Since, it follows that
Thus, the derivative of e x is itself !
For a composite function, Write the exponential function again Don’t forget the derivative of the inside function
Write the exponential function again
e.g. Write the exponential function again Don’t forget the derivative of the inside function
Understanding the Graph for y = e x Does the function y = e x represent exponential growth or decay?
Since e , this would be exponential growth.
Recall, Since y = y, it follows that the y-coordinate also represents the tangent slope
The y-coordinate is the tangent slope (0, 1) m t = 1
The y-coordinate is the tangent slope (2, e 2 ) m t = e 2
Ex. 3Differentiate Try this question yourself first. Then, check the answer on the following pages.
Ex. 4 Find y. Try this question yourself first. Then, check the answer on the following pages.
Product rule e is just a constant. So, you ignore the constant coefficient and take the derivative of x.
Ex. 5Where (x-values) does the function have a horizontal tangent? Try this question yourself first. Then, check the answer on the following pages.
A function has a horizontal tangent when its tangent slope (i.e. derivative) is zero. when Note: e 2x > 0 for all x , so it can never equal zero.
Weve looked at linear and quadratic functions, polynomial functions and rational functions. We are now going to study a new function called exponential.

Exponent Rules. Parts When a number, variable, or expression is raised to a power, the number, variable, or expression is called the base and the power.
8.3 – Logarithmic Functions and Inverses. What is a logarithm? A logarithm is the power to which a number must be raised in order to get some other number.
Linear & Quadratic Functions PPT What is a function? In order for a relation to be a function, for every input value, there can only be one output.
