Problem 11.37

Glucose is the major fuel for most living cells. The oxidative breakdown of glucose by our body to produce energy is called respiration. The reaction for the complete combustion of glucose is C6H12O6(s) 1 6O2(g) 88n 6CO2(g) 1 6H2O(l) If this combustion reaction could be harnessed as a galvanic cell, calculate the theoretical voltage that could be produced at standard conditions. (Hint: Use DG8f values from Appendix 4.)

Since genetically engineered crops were sold commercially in the United States, regulations and laws have been rather flexible regarding the release of genetically modified foods. The four federal agencies responsible for labeling, regulating, and releasing genetically modified foods include: “The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the United States Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS),” (Acosta, 2014). In the United States, under the Coordinated Framework for Regulation of Biotechnology (1986), GMOs are regulated with a focus on the nature of such products not the process by which they are produced, (Acosta, 2014). A lot of safety testin
