Question

(Chart Given)
Time (d)    Biomass(mg/L)
0                      50
1                      75
2                     111
3                    166
4                     248
5                     369

a. Calculate u(max).

b. What would the population size be after 25 days?

Step 1

To calculate µmax the for the population and size of population after 25 days.

Step 2

Using exponential growth equation, the value of µmax can be calculated: help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseReaaranging the equation gives the value of n Xg By putting the vales in the equati on: 369 In 166 max 5-3 In 2.2204d 2 fullscreen
