Unformatted text preview: When utilizing glycerol? Show or explain how you calculated this. from the graph, maltose 0.8 hr or 48 min glycerol 1.8 hr or 108 min 4. What is the growth yield coefficient (Y) for cells growing on glycerol? Show work 0.6% glycerol = 0.6g/100ml Ci = 650 μg/ml Y = (C f- Ci) 600mg/100ml C f = 2500 μg/ml (S f-Si ) 6,000 mg/l Si = 6000μg/ml S f = 0 Y= (2500μg/ml - 650μg/ml)/(6000 μg/ml) Y=(1850μg/ml)/6000μg/ml Y= 0.308 NO UNITS 5. What is k for cells growing on glycerol? Show work k = kmax =ln2/g g = 108 min or 1.8 hr kmax = ln2/1.8hr = 0.641 hr-1 or 0.0144 min-1...
