Question

# The blood sugar (glucose) level of a diabetic patient is approximately $0.140 \mathrm{~g}$ of glucose $100 \mathrm{~mL}$ of blood. Every time the patient ingests $40 \mathrm{~g}$ of glucose, her blood glucose level rises to approximately $0.240 \mathrm{~g} / 100 \mathrm{~mL}$ of blood. Calculate the number of moles of glucose per milliliter of blood and the total number of moles and grams of glucose in the blood before and after consumption of glucose. (Assume that the total volume of blood in her body is $5.0 \mathrm{~L}$.)

1 of 8

Calculate the molar mass of $\mathrm{C_6H_{12}O_6}$.

\begin{align*} 6\left(12.01\;\mathrm{g/mol}\right)+12\left(1.01\;\mathrm{g/mol}\right)+6\left(16.00\;\mathrm{g/mol}\right) &=180.18\;\mathrm{g/mol} \end{align*}
