urgent..........how many ATP molecules could maximally be generated from one molecule of glucose if the complete oxidation of one mole of glucose to CO2 and H2O yields 686kcal and the useful chemical energy available in the high energy phosphate bond of one mole of ATP is 12kcal?

Since all the energy is being converted into ATP so

1ATP enrgy is 12kcal

total energy is 686kcal

no. of atp is 686/12 = 57 ATP
