Answer:

Exponential formula (1st order kinetics)

Explanation:

If a substance is decaying under exponential circumstance

#C=C_0timese^(-ktimest)#

is the formula to find the amount after t time. In this formula, k is decay rate.

If a substance is growing based on exponential circumstance

#C=C_0timese^(ktimest)#

is the formula to find its amount after t time. In this formula, k is growth rate. Human population (if there is no upper limiting factor) grows like this.
