What happens to the 62 percent of the total energy of glucose that is not used to make ATP molecules?

The remaining energy is lost as heat due to the 2nd law of thermodynamics. According to that law, only part of the energy will transfer and the rest will be lost as heat. For example, and engine uses part of the energy for motion and the rest dissipates through heat.


How many molecules of ATP are produced by the entire breakdown of glucose?

I think that it is Mitochondria...but im not sure. The first stages in the breakdown of glucose occur in the cytoplasm of the cell. These reactions do not use oxygen and only a small amount of energy is converted to ATP. Much more energy is released in the second stage which does take place in the mitochondria. This is the stage which uses oxygen.


What is the combined total of kinetic and potential of an object?

If you mean energy, then it would be mechanic. There is also elastic energy which is also considered in mechanic energy.


What is the net ATP yield per glucose during glycolysis?

Gross yield of ATP during glycolysis: 4Net yield of ATP during glycolysis: 2 (anaerobic glycolysis of a glucose molecule took 2 ATP to accomplish so subtract 2 ATP from your gross yield of 4...therefore it's 2 for net yield).Kreb cycle: produces a total of 2ATP (one each time it happens and it happens twice).


Potential energy plus kinetic energy equal what?

Mechanical energy is equal to potential energy plus kinetic energy in a closed system. The total mechanical energy is conserved.

How can i make a 10 percent glucose solution from 50 percent glucose solution?

Let's say the total solution is 100 liters. 50 of the liters is glucose and 50 is water. We want to make the 50 glucose equal to 10% of the total solution. For that to happen, we need to make the total solution 500 liters (50 of the 500 would be a 10% solution). So we add 400 liters of water to the original 100 liter (50/50) solution. Take the total number of units and multiply by 4. Add that much in water.
