3 questions on "Microbial Growth and Its Control - The Microbial Growth Cycle"

What is the exponential phase?

Cells in the exponential phase are typically in the healthiest state. Cells experience no limitations and grow at maximum growth rate.
What is the stationary phase?
The growth rate of population is zero in the stationary phase. Either an essential nutrient is used up, or waste product of the organism accumulates in the medium.
Which numbers are related to which phase?
a-c = the lag phase
c-d = the exponential phase
d-e = the transition state
e-f = the stationary phase
f-g = the unstable phase
g-h = the death phase
