The doubling time is the time it takes for a population to double in size/value. It is applied to population growth, inflation, resource extraction, consumption of goods, compound interest, the volume of malignant tumours, and many other things that tend to grow over time.

There is an important relationship between the percent growth rate and its doubling time known as \u201cthe rule of 70\u201d: to estimate the doubling time for a steadily growing quantity, simply divide the number 70 by the percentage growth rate.

If an economy grows at 2% per year, it will take 70 / 2 = 35 years for the size of that economy to double.

Doubling Time Formula read more, the calculation of doubling time in terms of years is derived by dividing the natural log of 2 by the rate of annual return (since (1 + r/n) ~ er/n). The above formula can be further expanded as, Doubling time = 0.69 / r = 69 / r% which is known as rule of 69.

The result is the number of years, approximately, it'll take for your money to double. For example, if an investment scheme promises an 8% annual compounded rate of return, it will take approximately nine years (72 / 8 = 9) to double the invested money.

The Rule of 70 is a simplified way of determining the doubling time using the equation, doubling time = 70 / r , where r is the rate of growth for a population in percent. For example, if a population of 10 species were growing by two individuals a year, the r value would be 20%.

The doubling time is the time it takes for a population to double in size/value. It is applied to population growth, inflation, resource extraction, consumption of goods, compound interest, the volume of malignant tumours, and many other things that tend to grow over time.

To find the doubling rate, divide the growth rate as a percentage into 70. As of 2017, the annual growth rate for the entire world is 1.053%. That means the human population on Earth will double from 7.4 billion in 66 years, or in 2083. However, as previously mentioned, doubling time is not a guarantee over time.

The doubling time is a characteristic unit (a natural unit of scale) for the exponential growth equation, and its converse for exponential decay is the half-life. For example, given Canada's net population growth of 0.9% in the year 2006, dividing 70 by 0.9 gives an approximate doubling time of 78 years.
