In yeast, ethanol is produced from glucose under anaerobic conditions. What is the maximum amount of ethanol (in millimoles) that could theoretically be produced under the following conditions? A cell-free yeast extract is placed in a solution that contains 2.50 × 102 mmol glucose, 0.40 mmol ADP, 0.40 mmol Pi, 0.80 mmol ATP, 0.20 mmol NAD , and 0.20 mmol NADH. It is kept under anaerobic conditions. Under the same conditions, what is the theoretical minimum amount of glucose (in millimoles) required in the solution to form the maximum amount of ethanol?
