Problem 77E

A drug response curve describes the level of medication in the bloodstream after a drug is administered. A surge function S(t)=Atpekt is often used to model the response curve, reflecting an initial surge in the drug level and then a more gradual decline. If, for a particular drug, A=0.01,p=4,k=0.07, and t is measured in minutes, estimate the times corresponding to the inflection points and explain their significance. If you have a graphing device, use it to graph the drug response curve.
