The results of this experiment showed that E. coli grown at 37°C had the highest growth
rate (k), at 1.92 generations/hour and lowest generation time (g) at 31.4 minutes. The E. coli
grown at 27°C had a growth rate of 1.02 generations/hour and a generation time of 59.3 minutes.
At 45°C, the growth rate of E. coli was 0.9 generations/hour and the generation time was 66.6
minutes. The E. coli grown at 55°C did not grow sufficiently enough to calculate k and g values,
due to the high temperatures causing the cells to lyse.
