Enter an equation for the function. Give your answer in the form
In the event that
a = 1,
give your answer in the form
A laser beam with an output of 6 milliwatts is directed into a series of mirrors. The laser beam loses 2% of its power every time it reflects off of a mirror. The power p(n) is a function of the number n of reflections.
One reflection mirror results in new beam of (1) (.98) (since .02 is lost)
next reflectoin of THIS beam (1)(.98) results in (1) (.98)(.98)
Next time it reflects (1) (.98)(.98)(.98)
so b^n would be beam stength: (1) (.98)^n = (.98)^n Where n is the number of mirrors ....
