Question #87911

If a bacterial cell divides once every minute and take 47 minute to fill a bottle how much time it will take to fill half the bottle

Expert's answer

Every division increases the cell mass in a two-fold manner. Once there is half a bottle of cells, the next division will result in a complete bottle. So, there is one division difference between the complete and half bottle.

There were 47 minutes required to complete the bottle. Thus, 46 minutes were needed to fill the bottle by half.
