Image: Comparing evolution of bacteria population density with a parabola model
Experimental data from measurements of bacteria population density are compared with a model where the population size is a quadratic function of time. The quadratic model $B_t= 0.0236 + .000186t + 0.00893 t^2$ was determined by fitting a parabola to the data points. The data was taken from the following table with time rescaled so that each snapshot was one unit of time.
|Time (min)||Time index||Population Density|
