    The molecular formula for glucose is C6H12O6. What would be the molecular formula for a

    molecule made by linking three glucose molecules together by dehydration reactions?

    A) C18H36O18

    B) C18H32O16

    C) C6H10O5

    D) C18H10O15

    E) C3H6O3


    B) C18H32O16(bc you use 2 water molecules to form molecule...so you are losing 4 H molecules and 2 O molecules). the first 2glucose molecule combine losing one water molecule; and the third combines to them, losing another water molecule.
