How might you use radioactive isotope to find out whether the oxygen in CO2comes from sugar or oxygen gas?


Question asked by: knowitall

This doesn\'t make sense does it - all oxygen atoms are the same aren\'t they?

So I\'m not sure how it could be that you can tell where oxygen atoms come from by looking at oxygen atoms?
