### Solving for specific growth rate.

#### Inputs:

 maximum specific growth rate (um) second^-1day^-1hour^-1minute^-1year^-1
 substrate concentration (S) kilogram/meter^3gram/centimeter^3gram/meter^3gram/milliliterkilogram/deciliterkilogram/litermilligram/literounce/foot^3ounce/inch^3pound/foot^3pound/bushel UKpound/bushel USpound/gallon UKpound/gallon USpound/inch^3pound/yard^3ton metric/meter^3slug/foot^3slug/inch^3
 saturation constant (KS) kilogram/meter^3gram/centimeter^3gram/meter^3gram/milliliterkilogram/deciliterkilogram/litermilligram/literounce/foot^3ounce/inch^3pound/foot^3pound/bushel UKpound/bushel USpound/gallon UKpound/gallon USpound/inch^3pound/yard^3ton metric/meter^3slug/foot^3slug/inch^3

#### Conversions:

 maximum specific growth rate (um)= 0 = 0second^-1
 substrate concentration (S)= 0 = 0kilogram/meter^3
 saturation constant (KS)= 0 = 0kilogram/meter^3

#### Solution:

 specific growth rate (u)= HAS NOT BEEN CALCULATED

 Solve for specific growth rate. Solve for maximum specific growth rate. Solve for saturation constant or half velocity constant. The concentration where specific growth rate is half of um Solve for substrate concentration.

Where
 u = specific growth rate um = maximum specific growth rate KS = saturation constant S = substrate concentration
