Problem 4
You have a colony of bacteria that, if left undisturbed, grows proportionally to the population, with a factor
0.008 (and they never die......). Let’s say we use years as unit of time, and you harvest a quantity h of the
bacteria every year, and say the initial population is P0 .
• if P0 = 2000, what’s the value of h that gives you a constant population?
• if h = 200, what’s the value of P0 that gives you a constant population?
• if P0 = 100 and h = 50, find an expression for the population at a generic time t.
