Unformatted text preview: Plot the cell concentration and dissolved oxygen concentration in the fermenter as a function of time, using Xinitial=10-3 g cells/l. b) In reality the dissolved oxygen concentration, CO2 affects the growth rate. The effect of dissolved oxygen on the growth rate is described by a Monod-type relation, where KO2= 5x10-7 moles O2/l. Derive the equations that will allow you to calculate CO2 and X as a function of time. BONUS: 20 Points bonus if you can actually plot the equations in (b) above. You are trying to sterilize a 10 liter volume so that Nf=10-3 (i....
