Question

In 1970, the global human population was 3.71 billion people. The average global birth rate at that time was 3.1 per 100 individuals per year (0.031 per capita), and the average death rate was 1.0 per 100 individuals per year. What was r (r=per capita growth rate) for the human population at that time?

Answer #1

Growth rate per individual per year is calculated as :

r = birth rate per individual per year - the death rate of per individual per year

(Note individual & capita are the same in meaning)

The average global birth rate at that time was 3.1 per 100 individuals per year (0.031 per capita)

birth rate = 0.031

The average death rate was 1.0 per 100 individuals per year.

death rate = 1/100 = 0.01

r (per capita growth rate) for the human population at that time

= birth rate - death rate

= 0.031 - 0.01

= 0.021

r = 0.021

0.021 per capita growth rate for the human population at that time.

When scientists calculate a per capita birth or death rate,
what aspect of the calculation differs from the calculation of a
population growth rate?
Per capita rates measure changes over a specified unit of time,
whereas population growth rates do not.
Per capita rates are used to measure changes in human
populations, whereas population growth rates measure changes in
natural or wild populations.
Per capita rates measure changes in the whole population per
unit time, whereas population growth rates measure...

The birth rate of a population is
b(t) = 2400e0.022t
people per year and the death rate is
d(t)= 1400e0.019t
people per year, find the area between these curves for 0 ≤
t ≤ 10.

Suppose a population of fish at a farm follows logistic growth.
The per capita birth rate is 0.7 fish per day, the per capita
natural death rate is 0.2 fish per day, and the carrying capacity
is 20000. Fish are harvested at a constant rate of 7000 fish per
week.
Find the equilibrium solutions to the equation.

Population Growth Equation
In the population growth equation, the letter “r” is defined as
the per capita rate of increase, which is the difference
between the per capita birth rate (the number of offspring produced
per unit of time by an average member of the population) and per
capita death rate (average number of deaths in the population per
unit time).
What does the value of “r” indicate
about a population?
All of the following characteristics are typical of a...

At the end of 2012, global population was about 7.0 billion
people. What mass of glucose in kg would be needed to provide 1900
cal/person/day of nourishment to the global population for one
year? Assume that glucose is metabolized entirely to CO2(g) and
H2O(l) according to the following thermochemical equation:
C6H12O6(s)+6O2(g)⟶6CO2(g)+6H2O(l)ΔH∘=−2803kJ

Suppose that every $566 billion of dead capital reduces the
average rate of growth in worldwide per capita real GDP by 0.3
percentage points.
If there is $8 trillion in dead capital in the world,
calculate by how many percentage points the existence of dead
capital will reduce average worldwide growth of per capita real
GDP. ___ percent.

Determine the expected population for a rural community of 1,500
people after 15 years if the community is losing population at a
rate of 1%/y because of migration to urban areas. The birth rate is
20 per thousand per year and the death rate is 0.5 percent per
year.

The rate of increase for the human population in India is
1.2%/year. (a) How long would you expect their population to double
from its current level of 1.3 billion people? (b) What might
prevent the population from reaching this level

In a model of demographic stochasticity, the probability of a
birth or a death depends on the relative magnitudes of b and d:
Pbirth = b/((b+d) ) and Pdeath = d/((b+d) ) The probability of
extinction depends not only on the relative births and death rates
but also on the starting population size No: Pextinction = (d/b)No
Suppose that following the discovery of 100 individuals of an
endangered mammal, b was estimated as 0.0175 births per individual
per year, and...

The population of the world in 1975 was 15 billion and the
relative growth rate was estimated at 0.15 percent per year.
Assuming that the world population follows an exponential growth
model, find the projected world population in 2018.
