Specific growth rate (Monod) equation calculator - formula & step by step calculation to measure the dependence of the growth rate on the substrate concentration of bacteria or aerobic metabolism. μ = μmax x (S/(Ks x S)). Maximum specific growth rate μmax in time-1, concentration of substrate in solution S in mass/unit volume & half velocity constant Ks in mass/unit volume are the key elements of this calculation.
Formula for Bacteria Specific Growth Rate
In environmental engineering, the below formula is used to calculate the dependence of the bacteria growth rate on the substrate concentration. This calculator provides step by step calculation for each set of inputs let the users to understand how to perform such aerobic metabolism growth rate calculations manually
