## Growth Rate of Bacteria Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Generation time = Time for bacteria/No. of Generation
G = T/n
This formula uses 3 Variables
Variables Used
Generation time - (Measured in Second) - The generation time is defined as the rate of exponential growth of a bacterial culture.
Time for bacteria - (Measured in Second) - Time for bacteria is the time span for the development of bacteria.
No. of Generation - The No. of Generation is the number of cells with time.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Time for bacteria: 10.5 Second --> 10.5 Second No Conversion Required
No. of Generation: 16 --> No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
G = T/n --> 10.5/16
Evaluating ... ...
G = 0.65625
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
0.65625 Second --> No Conversion Required
0.65625 Second <-- Generation time

Growth Rate Constant of Bacteria
Growth Rate Constant = log2(No. of Bacteria at time t/Initial No. of Bacteria)/Time for bacteria
No. of Bacteria at Time T
No. of Bacteria at time t = (2^(Growth Rate Constant*Time for bacteria))*Initial No. of Bacteria
Volume of Culture Plate of Bacteria
Volume of Culture Plate = (No. of Colonies*Dilution Factor)/Colony Forming Unit per ml
Colony Forming Unit of Bacteria
Colony Forming Unit per ml = (No. of Colonies*Dilution Factor)/Volume of Culture Plate
Dilution Factor of Bacteria
Dilution Factor = (Colony Forming Unit per ml*Volume of Culture Plate)/No. of Colonies
No. of Colonies of Bacteria
No. of Colonies = (Colony Forming Unit per ml*Volume of Culture Plate)/Dilution Factor
No. of Generation using Generation Time for Bacteria
No. of Generation = Time for bacteria/Generation time
Growth Rate of Bacteria
Generation time = Time for bacteria/No. of Generation

## Growth Rate of Bacteria Formula

Generation time = Time for bacteria/No. of Generation
G = T/n

## What is Bacterial Growth?

Bacterial growth is proliferation of bacterium into two daughter cells, in a process called binary fission. Providing no event occurs, the resulting daughter cells are genetically identical to the original cell. Hence, bacterial growth occurs. Both daughter cells from the division do not necessarily survive. However, if the number surviving exceeds unity on average, the bacterial population undergoes exponential growth.

## How to Calculate Growth Rate of Bacteria?

Growth Rate of Bacteria calculator uses Generation time = Time for bacteria/No. of Generation to calculate the Generation time, The Growth Rate of Bacteria formula is defined as the rate of exponential growth of a bacterial culture which is expressed as generation time, also the doubling time of the bacterial population. Generation time is denoted by G symbol.

How to calculate Growth Rate of Bacteria using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Growth Rate of Bacteria, enter Time for bacteria (T) & No. of Generation (n) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Growth Rate of Bacteria calculation can be explained with given input values -> 0.65625 = 10.5/16.

### FAQ

What is Growth Rate of Bacteria?
The Growth Rate of Bacteria formula is defined as the rate of exponential growth of a bacterial culture which is expressed as generation time, also the doubling time of the bacterial population and is represented as G = T/n or Generation time = Time for bacteria/No. of Generation. Time for bacteria is the time span for the development of bacteria & The No. of Generation is the number of cells with time.
