In a two stage chemostat system, the volumes of the first and second reactors are V1=500 lit and V2=300 lit respectively.

 In a two stage chemostat system, the volumes of the first and second reactors are V1=500 lit and V2=300 lit respectively. The first reactor is used for Biomass production and the second is for a secondary metabolite formation. The feed flow rate to the first reactor is F=100lit hr and the glucose concentration in the feed is S=5.0 g/lit.use mMax=0.3 hr-1 Ks=0.1 g/lit Yx/s=0.4.a) Determine cell and Glucose concentrations in the effluent of the first stage.b) Assume that Growth is Negligible in the second stage and the specific rate of product formation is Qp=0.02 g p/g cell h and Yp/s=0.6g P/g s. Determine the product and substrate concentrations in the effluent of the second reactor.
