Give 3 differences between arithmetic geometric growth.

Arithmetic growth

Geometric growth

In arithmetic growth only one daughter cells dives and all the other cells undergo differentiation and maturation.

In geometric growth the growth is proportional to the nutrients supply after which it declines. All the daughter cells divide by mitosis. This is also known as exponential growth.

The graph obtained is a linear one.

Represented by a sigmoid curve where the three phases are initial, exponential and stationary phases.

Ex: Elongation of root occurring at a constant rate.

Ex; Cells growing in a culture medium.
