## Bacteria Growth Rate Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Bacteria Growth Rate.

**BGR = T / #G**

- Where BGR is the Bacteria Growth Rate (time per generation)
- T is the total time
- #G is the number of generations

## How to Calculate Bacteria Growth Rate?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Bacteria Growth Rate.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the total time.
- The total time is given as: 50.

- Next, determine the number of generations.
- The number of generations is provided as: 100.

- Finally, calculate the Bacteria Growth Rate using the equation above:

BGR = T / #G

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

BGR = 50 / 100 = .50 (time per generation)

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total time = 60

number of generations = 70

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator.

BGR = T / #G = ?
