8). The wavelength decreases with increasing temperature. See stefan–boltzmann constant. black box A term used to describe a process or system that is considered only in terms of its inputs and outputs, and with no knowledge or understanding of internal operations. It is typically used to represent complex systems where the precise details or mechanism of the process or system is not known or fully understood. It uses empirical or semi-empirical mathematical models, experimental data, past performance data, and trends to describe or predict behaviour.

022 1367(36) × 1023 and was formerly known as Avogadro’s number. Avogadro’s law A law that states that equal volumes of gases at the same temperature and pressure contain the same number of molecules. This was first stated as a hypothesis by the Italian chemist and physicist Amedeo *Avogadro (1776–1856) in 1811. However, this law was not generally accepted until after his death when the Italian chemist Stanislao Cannizzaro was able to explain why there were some exceptions to the hypothesis. axenic culture A microbial culture in a biological process that involves only one species of microorganism.

An example of a continuously operated bioreactor is the *chemostat. Constant agitation within a bioreactor can be maintained with an appropriate stirrer which also aids oxygen transfer in aerobic processes. Low-speed impellers or the use of sparged air up draft tubes are typically used to aid mixing. Since all bioprocesses are exothermic, cooling is required using either an external jacket or, for very large vessels, internal cooling coils. bioscrubbing The removal of odorous or toxic waste gases from biological processes.
