Question 1.
Express each of the following physical statements in the form of differential equation.
(i) Radium decays at a rate proportional to the amount Q present.
Solution:
Radium decays at a rate proportional to the amount Q present. (ii) The population P of a city increases at a rate proportional to the product of population and to the difference between 5,00,000 and the population.
Solution:
Rate of change of P with respect to ‘t’ is $$\frac{d \mathrm{P}}{d t}$$
Product of population and the difference between 50,000 and the population is P (50,000 – P)  (iii) For a certain substance, the rate of change of vapor pressure P with respect to temperature T is proportional to the vapor pressure and inversely proportional to the square of the temperature.
Solution: (iv) A saving amount pays 8% interest per year, compounded continuously. In addition, the income from another investment is credited to the amount continuously at the rate of ₹ 400 per year.
Solution:
Let ‘x’ be the amount invested.  Question 2.
Assume that a spherical rain drop evaporates at a rate proportional to its surface area. Form a differential equation involving the rate of change of the radius of the rain drop.
Solution:
