Solution: The oxidation of glucose (C6 H12 O6 ) in body tissue produces CO2 and H2 O. In contrast, anaerobic decomposition, which occurs during fermentation, produces ethanol (C2 H5 OH) and CO2.Using data given in Appendix C in the textbook, compare the equilibrium constants for the following reactions: (a) C6 H12 O6 (s) + 6O2 (g) ⇄ 6CO2 (g) + 6H2 O(l) (b) C6 H12 O6 (s) ⇄ 2C2 H5 OH(l) + 2CO2 (g)
