photosynthesis

This is a math problem. Glucose is 6 carbons and Glyceraldehyde is 3 carbons. So, you need 9 CO2 molecules to make 1 of each of these. You can calculate the rest...

Re: Glycolysis - reductive/oxidative?

... the perspective of the carbon atoms of glucose. That's where Jack's hint comes in, and I'll repeat it with more words -- what is happening to the carbons OF GLUCOSE? Is electron density increased due to swapping for more electron-donating substituents (reduction), or is the electron density of ...

Re: How much ATP a person consumes...?

... KCal or 500g of pure sucrose (table sugar). If you read the last sentence of the first paragraph it says "Dietary fats (usually 18 to 20 carbons) contain approximately 9 dietary calories per gram." I'm assuming we have to take this into consideration too? I haven't gotten that far ...

Re: How much ATP a person consumes...?

... weight = 0.782 moles of stearic acid. 0.782 moles of stearic x 6.02 x 10^23 = 4.708 x 10^23 molecules of stearic. Now, since if there are 18 carbons then 146 ATP are produced from fatty acid cycle 4.708 x 10^23 molecules of stearic x 146 ATP per molecule of stearic = 6.874 x 10^25 ATP produced ...
