Flask A has yeast cells in glucose-minimal salts broth incubated at 30C with aeration. Flask B has yeast cells in a glucose-minimal salt broth incubated at 30C in an anaerobic jar.
a) Which culture produced more ATP?
b) Which culture had a shorter generation time?
c) Which culture had a more cell mass?
d) Which culture generated more alcohol?
Rather than using yeast cells the similar experiment was performed with Clostridium, an obligate anaerobe. Again flask A had aeration and Flask B was in an anaerobic jar.
Which culture generated more ATP?
