Problem 1 Problem 2 a) Based on steady state cell mass balance, it can be shown that the dilution rate F/V (D) must equal specific growth rate (μ). Therefore, up to certain maximum D, incremental increase of D can increase specific growth rate of the culture leading to increase of the cell density. b) Since this is a substrate limited growth, at steady state, assume there is no substrate at output stream. Then, Y X/S = X / (0.05 × 180 – 0). By plotting 1/D vs 1/Y X/S , we can find Y TRUE at the Y-intercept. 1/Y X/S = m/D + 1/Y TRUE D (hr-1) X (g/L) Ideal Yx/s 1/D 1/Yx/S 0.05 1.58 2.86 0.175555556 20 5.696203 0.1 2.17 2.86 0.241111111 10 4.147465 0.15 2.47 2.86 0.274444444 6.666667 3.643725
