I've checked the OD600 of my bacteria culture every hour and derive the doubling time manually from plotting graph by hand.
But I wonder for my thesis writing, I probably needed use excel and formulas.
I came across many formulas in this case but don't really understand them.
g=1/k, where g=doubling time and k is growth rate.
The formula for growth rate is k=logXt-logX0/0.301t.
Can anyone explain the formula for k?
