One molecule of table sugar has 45 atoms.

There are eleven oxygen atoms in a molecule of table sugar C12H22O11.

The chemical formula of table sugar is C12H22O11; this molecule contain 45 atoms.

There are 22 atoms of hydrogen in each molecule of table sugar C12H22O11.

Sucrose has 12 carbon atoms in the molecule.

Table sugar, sucrose, has 8 hydrogen atoms.

There are 11 oxygen atoms in a molecule of table sugar.

The molecule of the table sugar contain 45 atoms.

The formula for sucrose (common sugar) is C12H22O11 , there are 11 oxygen atoms

That depends on what kind of sugar you're talking about. Table sugar, or sucrose, has the formula C12H22O11. One molecule of sucrose has 22 hydrogen atoms. Blood sugar, or glucose, has the formula C6H12O6. One molecule of glucose has 12 hydrogen atoms. Other types of sugar have different formulas. If you know the chemical formula, look at the subscript to the right of the H to see how many hydrogen atoms are in one molecule of sugar.

The chemical formula of table sugar (sucrose in English language) is:C12H22O11; consequently the sugar molecule contain 12 atoms of carbon, 22 atoms of hydrogen and 11 atoms of oxygen.

There are 22 atoms of hydrogen, 12 atoms of carbon, and 11 atoms of oxygen.

The organic molecule that undergoes glycolysis is the sugar glucose which contains 6 atoms of carbon per molecule.

Table sugar (sucrose) contains 12 atoms of carbon (C), 22 atoms of hydrogen (H) and 11 atoms of oxygen (O) for each molecule. So, the number of molecules in sugar will depend on the weight of sugar you have. The more the weight, the more molecules. But in one molecule of sugar there are 45 atoms.

The molecule of sugar (sucrose or saccharose, C12H22O11) contain 45 atoms. From these 12 are carbon atoms.

Yes. Table sugar consists of an organic molecule known as sucrose. Sucrose contains many carbon and hydrogen atoms. Because of this, a molecule of sugar is much large than a molecule of water, which consists only of an oxygen atom bonded to two hydrogen atoms.

due to the centrifical force the molecule speed up and change

If there are 2 moles of sugar. and 12 atoms of carbon per sugar molecule then there will be 24 moles of carbon atoms.

1 molecule of sugar has 6 moles carbon, 12 moles hydrogen, and 6 moles oxygen. 24moles*6.022*1023 atoms/mole= 1.45 *1025 atoms

A molecule is a combination of atoms. To know how many atoms are in one molecule, you have to find out what atoms are in the molecule.

135. The empirical formula for sucrose (table sugar) is C12H22O11, for 45 atoms per sucrose molecule.

The term "sugar" can refer to many different molecules.-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Simple sugars have the formula Cn(H2O)n .To be able to answer your question you need to know at least how many carbon, hydrogen, or oxygen atoms are in your sugar molecule or the name of the sugar molecule. So, if you had 6 carbon atoms in your simple sugar you would have the formula C6H12O6.Note that this is the the molecular formula for Glucose & Fructose, where the two sugars have different structures (Glucose is a aldohexose, and Fructose is a ketohexose).------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------The simplest sugar is Glucose and this has the chemical formula C6H12O6It is thus made of6 Carbon atoms12 Hydrogen atoms6 Oxygen atomsMaking a total of 12 atoms.

Sugar itself is a molecule. But other than that the molecules are 6 carbon atoms, 12 hydrogen atoms, and 6 oxygen atoms.

Well...if by sugar you mean glucose or dextrose (depending on whether you are taking bio or chem respectively), the molecular formula is C6H12O6. That means there are 6 carbon atoms, 12 hydrogen atoms, and 6 oxygen atoms in a single molecule. That's a grand total of 24 atoms in a single molecule of glucose (a.k.a dextrose).
