## Applications of Differential Equations## Population Dynamics
As we've seen, there are two popular models for describing population growth, both of which involve first order differential equations. We're going to discuss both models, and compare the results we get with each against reality. ## Reality
Let's start right here at home. Census data for the United States has been available since 1790, and Wolfram's database holds this population information if we can just figure out how to access it. The command we will be needing is CountryData. Switch to Let's discuss what you should have gotten. |
