In Grade 10, you studied graphs of many different forms. In this chapter, you will learn a little more about the graphs of exponential functions.
Functions of the form
$y=a{b}^{(x+p)}+q$ For
$b>0$
This form of the exponential function is slightly more complex than the form studied in Grade 10.
Investigation : functions of the form
$y=a{b}^{(x+p)}+q$
On the same set of axes, with
-5\le x\le 3 and
-35\le y\le 35 , plot the following graphs:
$f\left(x\right)=-2\xb7{2}^{(x+1)}+1$
$g\left(x\right)=-1\xb7{2}^{(x+1)}+1$
$h\left(x\right)=0\xb7{2}^{(x+1)}+1$
$j\left(x\right)=1\xb7{2}^{(x+1)}+1$
$k\left(x\right)=2\xb7{2}^{(x+1)}+1$
Use your results to understand what happens when you change the value of
$a$ .
You should find that the value of
$a$ affects whether the graph curves upwards (
$a>0$ ) or curves downwards (
$a<0$ ). You should also find that a larger value of
$a$ (when
$a$ is positive) stretches the graph upwards. However, when
$a$ is negative, a lower value of
$a$ (such as -2 instead of -1) stretches the graph downwards. Finally, note that when
$a=0$ the graph is simply a horizontal line. This is why we set
$a\ne 0$ in the original definition of these functions.
On the same set of axes, with
-3\le x\le 3 and
-5\le y\le 20 , plot the following graphs:
$f\left(x\right)=1\xb7{2}^{(x+1)}-2$
$g\left(x\right)=1\xb7{2}^{(x+1)}-1$
$h\left(x\right)=1\xb7{2}^{(x+1)}+0$
$j\left(x\right)=1\xb7{2}^{(x+1)}+1$
$k\left(x\right)=1\xb7{2}^{(x+1)}+2$
Use your results to understand what happens when you change the value of
$q$ .
You should find that when
$q$ is increased, the whole graph is translated (moved) upwards. When
$q$ is decreased (poosibly even made negative), the graph is translated downwards.
On the same set of axes, with
-5\le x\le 3 and
-35\le y\le 35 , plot the following graphs:
$f\left(x\right)=-2\xb7{2}^{(x+1)}+1$
$g\left(x\right)=-1\xb7{2}^{(x+1)}+1$
$h\left(x\right)=0\xb7{2}^{(x+1)}+1$
$j\left(x\right)=1\xb7{2}^{(x+1)}+1$
$k\left(x\right)=2\xb7{2}^{(x+1)}+1$
Use your results to understand what happens when you change the value of
$a$ .
You should find that the value of
$a$ affects whether the graph curves upwards (
$a>0$ ) or curves downwards (
$a<0$ ). You should also find that a larger value of
$a$ (when
$a$ is positive) stretches the graph upwards. However, when
$a$ is negative, a lower value of
$a$ (such as -2 instead of -1) stretches the graph downwards. Finally, note that when
$a=0$ the graph is simply a horizontal line. This is why we set
$a\ne 0$ in the original definition of these functions.
Following the general method of the above activities, choose your own values of
$a$ and
$q$ to plot 5 graphs of
$y=a{b}^{(x+p)}+q$ on the same set of axes (choose your own limits for
$x$ and
$y$ carefully). Make sure that you use the same values of
$a$ ,
$b$ and
$q$ for each graph, and different values of
$p$ . Use your results to understand the effect of changing the value of
$p$ .
These different properties are summarised in
[link] .
Table summarising general shapes and positions of functions of the form
$y=a{b}^{(x+p)}+q$ .
$p<0$
$p>0$
$a>0$
$a<0$
$a>0$
$a<0$
$q>0$
$q<0$
Domain and range
For
$y=a{b}^{(x+p)}+q$ , the function is defined for all real values of
$x$ . Therefore, the domain is
$\{x:x\in \mathbb{R}\}$ .
The range of
$y=a{b}^{(x+p)}+q$ is dependent on the sign of
$a$ .
Therefore, if
$a>0$ , then the range is
$\left\{f\right(x):f(x)\in [q,\infty \left)\right\}$ . In other words
$f\left(x\right)$ can be any real number greater than
$q$ .
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.

Do you know which machine is used to that process?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field .
1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc
2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc
3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc.
and may other field for details you can check at Google
Azam
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
Prasenjit
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change .
maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
Azam
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
Prasenjit
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
Damian
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
Damian
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
Azam
Hello
Uday
I'm interested in Nanotube
Uday
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
Prasenjit
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
