Answer to Question #46522 in Biochemistry for cassandra

Question #46522
When 10 acetyl Co-A molecule(s) are respired through the Krebs Cycle and the electron transport chain to oxygen, how many ATP molecules will be produced?
Expert's answer
For 1 acetyl Co-A, we have 1 ATP, 3 NADH and 1 FADH2 from Krebs cycle.
From 3 NADH molecules we have 2.5 ATP molecules, for 1 FADH2 molecules we have 1.5 ATP molecules produced through electron transport chain to oxygen.
In total: 1 ATP + 3 * 2.5 + 1 * 1.5 = 10 ATP areproduced when 1 acetyl Co-A molecule is respired through the Krebs cycle and
electron transport chain.
