Suppose there is a medium and the bacteria's density is 5 X 10 ^5 and the generation time is 35 minutes. What is the density after 175 minutes?

The bacterial cells will divide 5 times (175 min/35 min)as generation time is 35 minutes.
Nt= No* 2n
where Nt= final cell number
No= original cell number
n= number of generation
Nt=5 X 105* 25
Nt=5 X 105 * 32
Nt= 160 *105
or 16*106
