2. The chemical reaction equation for respiration of glucose is: Candida utilis cells convert glucose to CO, and H,O during growth. The cell composition is CH,,00,No.plus 5% ash. Yield of biomass from substrate is 0.5 g g Ammonia is used as nitrogen source. (i) What is the oxygen demand with growth compared to that without? (ii) C. ltilis is also able to grow with ethanol as substrate, producing cells of the same composition as above. On a mass basis, how does the maximum possible biomass yield from ethanol compare with the maximum possible yield from glucose?
