In the process of glycolysis, 112 molecules of pyruvic acid (PVA) were formed. How many glucose molecules have been cleaved and how many ATP molecules are formed when glucose is completely oxidized in eukaryotic cells? Explain the answer.
1) In the process of glycolysis, when 1 glucose molecule is split, 2 pyruvic acid molecules are formed and energy is released, which is enough for the synthesis of 2 ATP molecules.
2) If 112 molecules of pyruvic acid were formed, then, therefore, 112: 2 = 56 glucose molecules were cleaved.
3) With complete oxidation per 38 glucose molecules, 38 ATP molecules are formed.
Therefore, with the complete oxidation of 56 glucose molecules, 38 x 56 = 2128 ATP molecules are formed
