When glucose is consumed, it reacts with oxygen in the body to produce carbon dioxide, water, and energy. How many grams of carbon dioxide would be produced if 45 g of #C_6H_12O_6# completely reacted with oxygen?
The reaction of 45 g of glucose will produce 66 g of
Here is the balanced equation:
Since the molar mass of glucose is 180 g, the 45 g given mass in this problem is
The equation tells us there are 6 moles of
Finally, converting to mass
