Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Lauren on Monday, June 13, 2011 at 9:58pm.

carbon dioxide (CO2) is the gas mainly responsible for global warming (the greenhouse effect). the burning of fossil fuels is a major cause of the increased concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere. carbon dioxide is also the end product of metabolism. a general overall equation for this very complex process represents the degradation of glucose (c6H12O6) to carbon dioxide (CO2) and water (H2O)

using glucose as an example of food, calculate the annual human production of CO2 in grams assuming that each person consumes 5.05 X 10^2 g of glucose per day. the worlds population is 6.5 billion and there are 365 days in the year.



I have NO IDEA how to even start this? Help? please show how to work it.
