Answer to Question #81719 in Chemical Engineering for mariya
Glucose is converted to ethanol in an anaerobic reaction with ammonia as the nitrogen source.0.45 g of ethanol are produced per g of glucose consumed. The steady state production rate of ethanol averages 0.4 kg hr -1.
The general equation for the reaction is
C6H12O6 + bNH3 cCH1.75O0.58N0.18 + dCO2 + e H2O + fC2H6O
Balance the equation for the reaction and determine how many moles of glucose and ammonia are consumed, and moles of ethanol are produced, in a one hour period.
