# Problem 1 Consider a population with the following characteristics; initial biomass (X0) of 200 mg TSS/L, maximum specific growth rate (µmax) of day-1, and a respiration rate coefficient of 0.05 day-1. (a) Assume logistic growth. Determine the population’s biomass (in units of TSS/L) after 2, 10, 100, and 10,000 days if the carrying capacity (K) is reported to be 5,000 mg TSS/L. (b) Assume exponential growth. Determine the population’s biomass (in units of TSS/L) after 2, 10, 100, and 10,000 days
