thanks a lot for all your answers concerning my last question. I am still 
learning a great deal about Mathematica. Here's a second puzzle.

Given an expression

 e(k,w) 10^i(-k - w)

find the smallest w such that the term is smaller than a predescribed bound 
b. For growing w the term is decreasing and converging towards 0.

Your help is very appreciated.
