EXPONENTIAL GROWTH CALCULATOR

A calculator for performing various calculations relating to exponential growth.

Select the calculation > Enter the input variables > Press Calculate

See below for a longer description of each calculation.

1. Growth multiple m which results from R% growth per year for t years. Final value: F = present value P multiplied by growth multiple m.

2. Multiple m equal to final value F divided by present value P.

3. Growth rate R% per year which results in a growth multiple m in t years.

4. Doubling period d years in which a value will double for a growth rate R% per year.

5. Geometric growth. Resulting multiple m times present value when the present value is doubled n times.

6. Number of doubling periods n resulting in a multiple of m.

7. Duration t years to exhaust a renewable resource m times present consumption rate with consumption growing at R% per year.

8. Duration t years to exhaust a non-renewable resource m times present annual consumption with consumption growing at R% per year.

9. Cumulative consumption m times present annual consumption resulting from R% per year consumption growth rate for t years.

10. Duration t equal to the number of years per doubling period d multiplied by the number of doubling periods n.

MORE OR LESS

The strategies for addressing global environmental issues are clear: Efficiencies must be improved, personal consumption reduced and renewable energy embraced. But have environmental advocates really got it right. Or are we being led up the garden path.

*More or Less* explores the fundamentals of consumption and uncovers some basic truths that are... well... rather inconvenient.
