```People dear to my heart have diabetes, so...

If you do not mind my asking, are you a high school student, or are you
actually a graduate student/postdoc? If it is the latter, please do the
humanity favor and send me the name of your advisor, because god forbid
medical research is done by people with gaps in knowledge of this
magnitude. I know I have been criticized on this forum for being less
than polite, but if any of us have a shred of integrity, we must do
something when medical research is concerned.

If you are a secondary/high school student, the answer is below.

The concentration is c = rho/mu, where rho is your density of 240mg/dL =
2.4 g/L and mu = 180.156 g/mol is the molar mass of glucose. This yields
c = 0.0133M and c times the volume of the box is 11 molecules of glucose.
