At the start of an experiment, there are 100 bacteria. If the bacteria follow an exponential growth pattern with a growth rate of 2%, what will be the population after 5 hours (round to the nearest bacteria)?

  1. 100 * 1.02^5

    assuming you mean 2% per hour
    if it is per minute it would be
    100 * 1.02 ^300
