Bacterial growth word problem using logarithms.
The number of bacteria N in a culture is given by the model N=250e^kt, where t is the time in hours, with t=0, corresponding to the time when N=250. When t=10, there are 280 bacteria. How long does it take the population to double in size? To triple in size?© SolutionLibrary Inc. solutionlibary.com 9836dcf9d7 https://solutionlibrary.com/math/algebra/bacterial-growth-word-problem-using-logarithms-3gp
...280/250 = 1.12
k = (ln 1.12)/10 = 0.0113328
When the population doubles, ...
