Stoichiometry questions


One type of anaerobic respiration converts glucose (C, start subscript, 6, end subscript, H, start subscript, 12, end subscript, O, start subscript, 6, end subscript) to ethanol (C, start subscript, 2, end subscript, H, start subscript, 5, end subscript, O, H) and carbon dioxide. If the molecular weight of glucose is 180 grams/mol and the molar mass of ethanol is 46 g/mol, how many grams of carbon dioxide are produced when 1 mol of glucose is digested via respiration?
