A colony of bacteria is growing in a petri dish which has a maximum capacity of 140mg. The mass of bacteria is increasing at a rate given by the logistic equation. Initially there is 2mg of bacteria and the rate of increase is 1mg per day.
y’=k*y(1-(y/M)) ——> the way the logistic equ is written….
Write down the logistic equation satisﬁed by the mass, m.
When will the mass of bacteria be 70mg?
number of days =
What is the mass (in GRAMS) of bacteria 10 days after the mass was 2mg?
mass =______________ grams
