Consider the following scenario:
An egg salad sandwich sitting in a warm car for 4 hours develops 40,960 bacterial cells.
- Determine how many more cells would result in just one more generation
- Explain what the cell count be after 4 hours if the initial bacterial dose was 100 cells
- Analyze your answers and the answers of your peers.
- Determine a conclusion about what your answers are telling you about using clean techniques in food preparation and storage. (other than esthetic considerations)
The minimum requirements for class discussions are to respond directly to the discussion prompt and to respond to at least two other posts, by other students or the instructor, by the end of the week. The discussion will close on the due date and will NOT be reopened for a late submission.
Submit one main post responding directly to each part of the discussion prompt(s) by Wednesday at 11:59 PM ET.
This should be a substantive response (between 75 -150 words minimum) to the topic(s) in your own words, referencing (using APA format) what you have discovered in your required reading and other learning activities.
You may use resources in addition to your textbook that supports your post(s); however, you must mention the source(s) that you used in your post(s) using APA format in-text citations and reference lists.
