## ResultsThe model for the growth curve was fitted to the experimental results as shown below. The experimental results is depicted by the red curve, while our model is shown by the green curve. The resource curve was also plotted as a function of time and is shown below. From experimental The following constants used to generate the model were found to yield the best fit to experimental results. GROWTH CONSTANT: A = 1.3494 INITIAL NUTRIENT CONCENTRATION: R_0 = 2 HILL COEFFICIENT: n = 1.25 INITIAL OD = 0.4 CONSTANT: α = 0.64516
