11 In a Laboratory, the count of bacteria in a certain experiment was increasing at the rate of 2.5% per hour. Find the bacteria at the end of 2 hours if the count was initially 5, 06,000.
Initial count of bacteria, P = 5, 06,000 (Principal Amount)
Rate of increase, R = 2.5% per hour.
Time period, n = 2 hours
(This question is done in a similar manner as compound interest)
Number of bacteria after 2 hours =
Therefore, the number of bacteria at the end of 2 hours will be 531616 (approx)
