Problem 91

Living organisms use energy from the metabolism of food to create an energy-rich molecule called adenosine triphosphate (ATP). The ATP acts as an energy source for a variety of reactions that the living organism must carry out to survive. ATP provides energy through its hydrolysis, which can be symbolized as follows:

\(\mathrm{ATP}(a q)+\mathrm{H}_{2} \mathrm{O}(l) \longrightarrow \mathrm{ADP}(a q)+\mathrm{P}_{\mathrm{i}}(a q) \quad \Delta G_{\mathrm{rxn}}^{\circ}=-30.5 \mathrm{~kJ}\)

where ADP represents adenosine diphosphate and \(P_{i}\) represents an inorganic phosphate group (such as \(\mathrm{HPO}_{4}^{2-}\) ).

a. Calculate the equilibrium constant, K, for the given reaction at 298 K.

b. The free energy obtained from the oxidation (reaction with oxygen) of glucose \(\left(\mathrm{C}_{6} \mathrm{H}_{12} \mathrm{O}_{6}\right)\) to form carbon dioxide and water can be used to re-form ATP by driving the given reaction in reverse. Calculate the standard free energy change for the oxidation of glucose and estimate the maximum number of moles of ATP that can be formed by the oxidation of one mole of glucose.
