the population of a colony of bacteria is growing exponentially according to the function below , where t is the time in hours. how long will it take for the population of the colony to grow to 1,000 B(t)=12*e^0.2t
Use the nat logs
nat log of e is 1, so we have
.2t = 4.22848
t = 22.1142 hrs to reach 1000
Check on a calc using t=22.1142
enter: 12*e^(.2*22.1142) = 999.99 ~1000
