Q:
# A cell culture contains 10 thousand cells, and is growing at a rate of r ( t ) = 12 e 0.17 t thousand cells per hour. find the total cell count after 6 hours. give your answer accurate to at least 2 decimal places.

Accepted Solution

A:

Growth, r(t) = 12e^(0.17t)

After 6 hours,

r(6) = 12e^(0.17*6) = 33.28 thousand cells

Total cells after 6 hours = 10+33.28 = 43.28 thousand cells.

Note:

Kindly confirm if the rate of growth is as give or is r(t) = 10e^(0.17t)

After 6 hours,

r(6) = 12e^(0.17*6) = 33.28 thousand cells

Total cells after 6 hours = 10+33.28 = 43.28 thousand cells.

Note:

Kindly confirm if the rate of growth is as give or is r(t) = 10e^(0.17t)
