2. Practical implication of exponential growth 3. Mathematics of exponential growth N = N o 2 n = final number of cells N o = initial number of cells n = number of generations g = t/n = generation time t = time of exponential growth (hr, min) 4. Example: E. coli culture Growing exponentially for 3 hours Started with 5 cells Generation time of 20 minutes a) How many generations of E. coli are in the culture? b) What is the final cell number of the
