application of exponents and logarithms
Think of a real-life situation that can be represented by a logarithmic function, tranlate the situation to the function, and solve the function and represent it graphically.

Growth is exponential therefore its solution is logarithmic.
$\frac{dP}{dt}=kP$

Also, Newton's law of cooling follows this principle.
$\frac{dT}{T-t_o}=kT$
