Dilution of pulse. Changes in the concentration of the limiting nutrient supplemented by an impulse in the chemostat as modelled by an ordinary differential equation. The cellular uptake of the nutrient for cellular growth and maintenance requirements was excluded from the model. The actual dynamics of the biomass concentration within the growth vessel is also provided. Two different scales are used on the y-axis for biomass and nutrient concentrations.
