During the exponential phase of batch culture, the growth rate of a culture is proportional to the concentration of cells

During the exponential phase of batch culture, the growth rate of a culture is proportional to the concentration of cells present. When Streptococcus lactis bacteria are cultured in milk, the concentration of cells doubles every 45 min. Calculate the specific growth rate. If this rate of growth is maintained for 12 h, what is the final concentration of cells relative to the inoculum level?
