Question

The fastest growing plant on record is a Hesperoyucca whipplei that grew $$3.7\ m$$ in $$14$$ days. What was its growth rate in micro-meters per second?


Solution

A day is equivalent to $$86400$$ seconds and a meter is equivalent to a million micrometers, so
$$Rate, R=\dfrac{(3.7\ m)(10^{6}\mu m/m)}{(14\ day)(86400\ s/day)}=3.1 \mu m/s$$
