Note:

Hey there! Thank you for posting the question. As your question has more than 3 parts, we have solved the first 3 parts for you. If you need help with any other particular part, please re-post the question and mention the part you need to be answered.

Step 2

1.

Obtain the size of a bacteria population when t = 0:

The size of a bacteria population (in grams) is given by the following function:

B(t) = 1,000*e0.018t

t is measured in days. That is, t = 1 day= 24 hours.

Here, t = 0.

The size of a bacteria population when t = 0 is obtained as 1,000 from the calculation given below:

2.

Find the bacteria population after 8 hours:

Here, t is measured in days. It is known that. 1 day = 24 hours.

The bacteria population ...
