Consider the plots of r vs. S below (labeled “1” and “2”), sketched for substrate consumption in a particular immobilized cell system subject to substrate inhibition. In one case the rate of substrate consumption is plotted as a function of average substrate concentration in the pores (Spore), and in the other case the rate is plotted as a function of the bulk substrate concentration (Sb).
At the optimal bulk substrate concentration (i.e., the value of Sb corresponding to the maximum rate of substrate consumption), specify the values of Spore and η.
This question belongs to bioreactors in biotechnology and discusses about substrate consumption in a particular immobilized cell system subject to substrate inhibition.
