The enthalpy change involved in the oxidation of Glucose is -2880 kJ/mol. 25 % of the energy is available for muscular work. If 100 kJ of muscular work is needed to walk one kilometer, what is the maximum distance that a person will be able to walk after eating 120 g of glucose ?
Molecular mass of Glucose = 180 g/mol
180 g of glucose evolvs ...
