Unformatted text preview: 9 per year. a. What is the logistic equation satisﬁed by the population, P ( t )? b. How many years until the population reaches 90% of the maximum? (7) A colony of bacteria is growing in a petri dish which has a maximum capacity of 100 mg. The mass of bacteria is increasing at a rate given by the logistic equation. Initially there is 2 mg of bacteria and the rate of increase is 1 mg per day. a. Write down the logistic equation satisﬁed by the mass, M ( t ). b. When will the mass of bacteria be 50 mg? c. What is the mass of bacteria 10 days after the mass was 2mg? 1...
