Question

The oxidation of the sugar glucose, C6H12O6, is described by the following equation:

C6 H12 O6(s) + 6O2(g) ⟶ 6CO2(g) + 6H2 O(l)    ΔH = −2816 kJ
The metabolism of glucose gives the same products, although the glucose reacts with oxygen in a series of steps in the body.

a) How much heat in kilojoules can be produced by the metabolism of 1.0 g of glucose?

(b) How many Calories can be produced by the metabolism of 1.0 g of glucose?
