Chapter 1, Problem 38P

Textbook Problem

A study from the National Institutes of Health stales that the human body contains trillions of microorganisms that make up 1% to 3% of the body’s mass. Use thus information to estimate the average mass of the body’s approximately 100 trillion microorganisms.

Expert Solution

To determine

The average mass of the body’s approximately hundred trillion microorganisms.

**Given Info**: The average body mass

**Explanation**:
