In an experiment reported in the scientific literature, male
cockroaches were made to run at different speeds on a miniature
treadmill while their oxygen consumption was measured.
In 30 minutes the average cockroach (running at 0.08 km/h)
consumed 1.0 mL of O2 at 101.33 kPa pressure and 20 °C per
gram of insect mass. (a) How many moles of O2 would be consumed
in 1 day by a 6.3-g cockroach moving at this speed?
