5.5 Mathematical models are used to predict the
growth of a population, that is, population size at some
future date. The simplest model is that for exponential
growth. The calculation requires knowledge of the
organism's maximum specific growth rate. A value
for this coefficient can be obtained from field observa-
tions of population size or from laboratory experiments
where population size is monitored as a function of
time when growing at high substrate concentrations

Calculate max for this population, assuming expo-
nential growth; include appropriate units.
