4) Consider two species of bacteria, A and B, which both grow according to Monod kinetics. Both have a maximum specific growth rate of 0.5 hr 1, but Species A has a half-saturation constant of 5 mg/L while Species B's is 30 mg/L. Assume the two species consume the same substrate but are grown in separate cultures. On the same graph, plot the specific growth rate of each species as a function of substrateа.concentration over a range of concentrations between 0– 200 mg/L. Include a legend and label axes, including units. b. Based on your kinetic model, what would you expect to happen if the two cultures were mixed and provided a limited supply of substrate? Answer in several sentences at most.
