The mass of ethyl alcohol produced when 5.25 g of glucose undergo the following reaction should be calculated. Concept Introduction: The balanced chemical reaction for fermentation of glucose is as follows: C 6 H 12 O 6 ( a q ) → 2 C 2 H 5 OH ( a q ) + 2 CO 2 ( g ) From the balanced chemical reaction, 1 mol of glucose gives 2 mol of ethyl alcohol. The number of moles of ethyl alcohol can be calculated from number of moles of glucose by balanced chemical reaction.

Solutions

Chapter 9, Problem 32QAP
Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The mass of ethyl alcohol produced when 5.25 g of glucose undergo the following reaction should be calculated.

Concept Introduction:

The balanced chemical reaction for fermentation of glucose is as follows:

C6H12O6(aq)2C2H5OH(aq)+2CO2(g)

From the balanced chemical reaction, 1 mol of glucose gives 2 mol of ethyl alcohol. The number of moles of ethyl alcohol can be calculated from number of moles of glucose by balanced chemical reaction.
