Re: Food to ATP energy?

... going to be a little bit Math-intense, but I'll try to summarize at the end (I think I answered the bulk of your issue above): The molecular weight ... can only be converted into 219 kilocalories. That means glucose oxidation releases most of its heat during the process of making ATP (Lucky ...
