Explain why do electrons flow spontaneously from one carrier to the next in the electron transport chain?
The electron transport chain is the final and most important stage of cellular respiration.The process involves stepwise movement of electrons from high energy state to lower energy state.The flow of electron from one carrier to another carrier is due to the difference in reduction potential. This difference in reduction potential causes decrease in free energy, hence process is spontaneous.
The decrease in free energy (-ΔG) is related with change in reduction potential (ΔE) as:
-ΔG = nFΔE
Since, ΔE = +ve
Therefore, ΔG = -ve (spontaneous).

Reduced form of the carrier of electrons from the tricarboxylic acid cycle (TCA) to the electron transport chain (ETC) Mitochondrion < 3. Molecule that is the substrate for the TCA cycle NAD+ 4. Site of the TCA cycle and the electron transport chain (ETC) 5. Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) 6. Oxygen carrying enzyme
Which of the following could explain why transfer of electrons from FADH2 to Coenzyme Q (CoQ) is not coupled to proton transfer, but transfer from NADH to Coenzyme Q is? Select one: a. FADH2 donates more electrons than NADH to the electron transport chain. b. Because FADH2 has higher affinity for electrons than Coenzyme Q c. Because FADH2 is a higher energy carrier than NADH d. Because the transfer of electrons from FADH2 to CoQ does not release enough energy....
BIOCHEMISTRY Q1: the flow of electrons from glucose to oxygen and makes the analogy to a simple electrochemical cell. To the best of your knowledge, how is this flow of electrons different than an electrochemical cell? Describe this difference and identify a couple of the intermediate electron carriers.
1)Where on the electron carrier Coenzyme Q are electrons "carried"? 2)Coenzyme Q and cytochrome C are similar in that they are both mobile electron carriers that act as part of the electron transport chain. However, they are different in most other ways. In one sentence for each, explain how they differ in their: A) structural composition (i.e. what kinds of molecules are they?) B) subcellular localization C) electron-carrying capacity

Regarding the electron transport chain (ETC)...How many ATPs are produced from one NADH? From one FADH2? Where in the ETC (i.e. to which electron carrier) does each of these molecules donate its electrons?
Question 10 2 pts Why do trees need water to reach their leaves? Water is important for photosynthesis because it replenishes electrons to the electron transport chain in the light reactions. Water is important for cellular respiration because it accepts the electron in the electron transport chain. Water is important because it is a major product of photosynthesis. Water is important because it is consumed during the Calvin Cycle. 2 pts Question 11
9. In the electron transport chain picture above, how do electrons move from protein complex I to protein complex II? 1. I need you to remember that "Q" is ubiquinone which gets reduced at proteins l & I, and oxidized at protein III. "Reduced" means gains electrons, "oxidized" means loses electrons. 2. I need you to remember how "Q" moves from protein I to protein Do you remember? Don't overthink it, Preeda. As far as scientists know right now, the...
