The reaction for the metabolism of sucrose, C12H22O11, is the same as for its combustion in oxygen to yield CO2(g) and H2O(l). The standard heat of formation of sucrose is -2230 kJ mol-1. Based upon data in Table 6.2 and problem 6.75 the amount of energy (in kJ) released by metabolizing 4.17 oz (118 g) of sucrose is?
