Is bacterial growth rate a function of bacteria population?

As the bacteria population changes, does the bacterial growth rate change?

    Bacterial growth is an exponential rate as a function of time.

    The rate does not depend on the population directly but rather the time that they have started to multiply. Of course a bigger population will kick start the multiplying bacteria in comparison to one lonely bacteria cell, but overall it is a function of time.
