Co2 from respiration-Sugars vs Fats

... get 3 CO2 during the process pyruvate-->energy you get 2 CO2 during the process Aceytl-CoA-->energy so C6H12O6 would make 6 CO2 and 36 ATP stearic acid would make 18 CO2 and 120 ATP so 120 ATP of sugar = 20 CO2?

Co2 from respiration-Sugars vs Fats

No, it's C6H12O6, which will give only 6 CO2, stearic acid is C18HsomethingO2, which will give 18 CO2 with the oxygens coming somewhere from water

Co2 from respiration-Sugars vs Fats

lol idk, is the extra co2 just from pyruvate dehydrogenase step? so C18H36O18 vs stearic acid would only give 6 extra co2 since that would be (6) C3H6O3

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

... happens when living on oil: 2,000 KCal for our diet / 9 KCal in a gram of fats = 222,2g of fat. Molecular wheight of a saturated C18 fatty acid -stearic (02C18H36) is 16x2+12x18+36= 284 (if am not wrong) 222 g of fat / 284g molecular weight = 0.782 moles of stearic acid. 0.782 moles of stearic ...
