  1. Did you do any more serial dilutions to determine exactly where the drug stops inhibiting the growth of Salmonella typhimurium?

  2. Day 2 of your bacteriostatic/cidal experiment showed a hit for inhibiting growth, but the growth was increased as compared to day 1. In a compound that was certainly a bactericidal antibiotic, there would be very little absorbency change between the two days, but in a bacteriostatic compound, the absorbency of day 2 should look more like the negative control, which it did not. So do you think the compound was bacteriostatic or bactericidal and why?
