μ g = μ max S S D = μ g = μ max μ max = ln (2) τ d = 0 . 289 hr - 1 However if we don’t assume this: ln (2) τ d = D max S K S + S D max = ln (2)( K S + S ) τ d S As S 0, or all the substrate is consumed to produce cell mass, indicating the maximum growth rate, D max → ∞ . Thus, we need some data to deter- mine when the Monod kinetics will plateau such that μ max can be determined empirically. 6.d DX = DY X/S 0 - K S D μ max - D DX = 3 . 49 g DW/L/hr 7 Shuler 6.9 Want to maximize biomass productivity (DX) while minimizing S o ut , thus find D such that d ( DX ) dD = 0. Since, DX = DY X/S ( S 0 - S ), maximizing DX also minimizes S. 11

DX = DY X/S ( S 0 - S ) D = μ g = μ max S K S + S S = DK S μ max - D DX = DY X/S S 0 - DK S μ max - D d ( DX ) dD = Y X/S d dD DS 0 - D 2 K S μ max - D Separate and apply quotient rule to get: d ( DX ) dD = Y X/S S 0 - K S D (2 μ max ) ( μ max - D ) 2 ! Setting this equal to zero to find the extrema and solving for D: 0 = Y X/S S 0 - K S D (2 μ max ) ( μ max - D ) 2 ! D = 0 . 518 or 0 . 482 We can check whether these are maxima or minima by taking the second deriva- tive and checking the sign at each dilution rate. d 2 ( DX ) dD 2 = - Y X/S K S 2 μ 2 max ( μ max - D ) 3 ! d 2 ( DX ) dD 2 D =0 . 518 > 0 minimum d 2 ( DX ) dD 2 D =0 . 482 < 0 maximum Therefore, D optimal = 0 . 482 h - 1 . This is the same as applying equation 6.83. To determine whether we have sufficient O 2 delivery, the cell concentration at this dilution rate is needed. 12
