    Molar mass of glucose = 180 gmol-1
    so, moles of glucose = 1000g/180 gmol-1 = 5.56 moles

    Now, ...

    Solution Summary

    This solution determines what the maximum amount of ethanol that can be obtained by the process of anaerobic respiration by finding out the molar mass of glucose, ethanol and volume of ethanol. All steps are shown.
