Question: After injection of a dose D of


After injection of a dose D of insulin, the concentration of insulin in a patient’s system decays exponentially and so it can be written as De-at, where t represents time in hours and a is a positive constant.
(a) If a dose D is injected every T hours, write an expression for the sum of the residual concentrations just before the (n + 1)st injection.
(b) Determine the limiting pre-injection concentration.
(c) If the concentration of insulin must always remain at or above a critical value C, determine a minimal dosage D in terms of C, a, and T.
