Question 15
Given that the average duplication time of E. coil is 20 minutes, how much time will two E. coli cells take to become 32 cells?


Solution

1 hour - 20 minutes
1 hour- 20 minutes

These are the 4 subsequent cell divisions to produce 16 cells and each division takes =20 min
Total time = 20 × 4 = 80 minutes or 1 hr 20 minutes
So, 1 cell produces 16 cells in 1 hour 20 minutes and
2 cells produces 32 cells in 1 hour 20 minutes.
