Answer

Growth rate = 3.059 micrometers per second

Work Step by Step

1 meter = 1000000 micrometers First, we convert the length into micrometers: 3.7m = 3.7*1000000 micrometers = 3700000 micrometers Next, we convert 14 days into seconds: 14 days = 14*24*60*60 seconds = 1209600 seconds. Hence, 3.7meters/14days = 3700000 micrometers/1209600 seconds = 3.059 micrometers/second
