Problem 14.23

Below are data taken from a batch reactor of bacterial growth (after lag phase was over). The bacteria are allowed to grow as fast as possible for the first 2.5 hours, and then they are induced to produce a recombinant protein, the production of which slows the bacterial growth significantly. The theoretical growth of bacteria can be described by d X dt = X where X is the number of bacteria, and is the specific growth rate of the bacteria during exponential growth. Based on the data, estimate the specific growth rate of the bacteria during the first 2 hours of growth and during the next 4 hours of growth.

Step-by-Step Solution:

TROUBLE SHOOTING PROCESS Step 1: Identify the Problem In this first step you already know that there is a problem; now you have to identify exactly what it is. This means gathering information. You do this in a few ways: . Question the user. Ask the person who reported the problem detailed questions about the issue. You want to find out about symptoms, unusual behavior, or anything...
