A 137 g rat enters a kitchen and eats 5 sugar (sucrose) cubes each

  1. Jan 7, 2012 #1
    A 137 g rat enters a kitchen and eats 5 sugar (sucrose) cubes each weighing 2.5 g. The sugar is rapidly metabolized aerobically to CO2 and H20. Assuming the only weight loss for the rat is the loss of CO2 gas (water is retained) how many grams does the rat weigh once the sugar is metabolized?

    Any help will be greatly appreciated !!

    Have you not been going to class and reading the textbook?
