Unformatted text preview: H° for this reaction at 80°C and 1 atm.
b) Estimate ∆G° for this reaction at 80°C and 1 atm. Is it spontaneous?
c) If 80 g/L glucose is completely converted by this bacterium at 80°C and 1 atm
in a fermentation bioreactor, how much heat is dissipated into the
surroundings if the temperature is constant?
d) If the bioreactor is insulated and no heat is allowed to escape, what would be
the rise in temperature of the fermentation broth (assume that physical
properties of the broth are identical to those of water).
Use data from tables A.5-7 in Tinoco. Other physical properties that may be
Mol Weight (g/mol)
Acetic acid (l)
CO2 (g) Sample Problem 3: Fever
The basal rate of a “standard man” (150 lbs = 68 kg) is
equal to 72 kcal/h. Heat losses occur due to radiation,
evaporation, convection, and conduction. If you bundle up
and your body compensates when you’re sick, you can
shut down many of these (except radiation). Let’s suppose
that you can shut down all of the body’s mecha...
