Cell Metabolism and Growth
1. Consider a culture of bacteria with empirical biomass formula
CH1.7O0.46N0.18 (MWB = 23.6 g/mole)
growing aerobically on glucose (C6H12O6).
You decide to measure the yield coefficients for glucose and oxygen and find that
Chap 7 Microbial Process Kinetics
Design of fermentation processes requires quantitative description of cellular processes.
Two important parameters:
Yield: specifies the amount of product obtained from the substrate, important when
V. Discussion of Results
To get the experimental value of Km and Vmax, 13 substrate concentrations were assumed.
The assumed values started from 0 g/L to 8500 g/L. From Table 1, the substrate concentration

Sedimentation and Thickening
A single batch-settling test was made on a limestone slurry. The interface
between clear liquid and suspended solids was observed as a function of time, and the
