Ecoli is a rod shaped bacteria about 2micrometre long and 1 micrometer in diameter. The average density of a cell is 1.28g/ml approximately 13.5% of the wet weight of E.coli is soluble protein. Estimate the no. Of molecules of a particular enzyme per cell if the enzyme has a molecular weight of 1000000 and represents 0.1% of the total soluble protein.

Dear Student,

By having length and diameter of the E.coli  we can find the volume of it.
