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 if45 g of #C_6H_12O_6# completely reacted with oxygen?
First, find the balanced chemical formula:
Since glucose forms carbon dioxide in a 1:6 ratio, we know that one mole of glucose yields 6 moles of carbon dioxide. So in order to find the moles of carbon dioxide formed, we need to multiply the moles of glucose by 6.
To find grams of carbon dioxide, just multiply the moles of
Since you only have 2 sig figs, the answer would be 66 grams.
