(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A beaker contained 2000 bacteira. one hour later the beaker contained 2500 bacteria. What is the doubling time of the bacteria?

2. Relevant equations

rate = (distance)/(time)

Time to double = .693/((ln(1+r))^t)

3. The attempt at a solution

rate = 2500/2000

My biggest problem is trying to find the rate, I used this at first, but think it is giving me the wrong answer. I know how to finish the problem, i just need help finding the rate. Thanks!
