Question

A population has a doubling time of 35 days. What is it’s growth rate (gr) ?

check_circleAnswer
Step 1

The doubling time of a population is defined as the amount of time that a population needs to double its numbers, while the growth rate of an organism is defined as the rate at which the total number of organisms in a population increase. Both of these values are important parameters to judge the health of a population.

Step 2

Growth rate and doubling time, for a bacterial population, are related to each other through the following formula:

 

According to the question, the doubling tim...
