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.
