Unformatted text preview: McCague File-079 4. If the initial bacterial count is 65,536 and the initial number 4 hours earlier was 256, how long is the generation time for this culture? (show your solution answer below) 5. The formula for generation time is: G.T. = T E / n The formula for final population size is: N t = N o x 2 n Using algebraic derivation prove that the above two equations can be combined to give: G.T. = T E / 3.32 x log (N t / N o ) Prove mathematically that this is true....
