Below are the reduction half reactions for chemolithoautotrophic nitrification, where ammonia is a source of electrons and energy and oxygen is the terminal electron acceptor. NO26eNH4 (-0.41 volts) 02+ 4e-> 2H20 (+0.82 volts) If you balance and combine the reactions so that 78 molecules of NH4 are oxidized to NO2, how many molecules of H will be produced?
