Method With the use of the molar equation for the oxidation of carbohydrate, the amount of ATP resynthesized per mole of glucose. When the reactants and products are expressed in common metric units and by taking into account molecular weights and volumes per mole of ideal gasses state, and assuming that an average person typically consumes 400–500 liters of O2 per day.
