# How many moles of carbon are produced when 1745 g of glucose decomposes?

Jun 26, 2016

#### Answer:

$9.69 \cdot m o l \times 6$ $\cong$ $\text{60 moles of carbon}$

#### Explanation:

$\text{Moles of carbon}$ $=$ $6 \times \text{moles of glucose}$

$\text{Moles of glucose}$ $=$ $\frac{1745 \cdot g}{180.16 \cdot g \cdot m o {l}^{-} 1}$ $=$ $9.69 \cdot m o l$
