No data Find µmax, Ks, and Yx/s for B. texanus based on this data.
2. Exam problem 2004 In a chemostat with cell recycle, the feed flow rate and culture
volumes are F = 100 ml/h and V = 1000 ml, respectively. The system is operated under
glucose limitation, and the yield coefficient, Y XM is 0.5 gdw cells/g substrate. Glucose
S concentration in the feed is S0 = 10 g glucose/l. The kinetic constants of the organisms are
μ M = 0.2 h-1, KS = 1 g glucose/l. The value of C is 1.5, and the recycle ratio is α = 0.7 . The
system is at a steady state and the cells obey Monod kinetics.
A. Derive an expression for μ as a function of D and then find the substrate
concentration in the recycle str...
