Question

Imagine that the concentrations of reactants and products for the coupled reactions above in the cell are at a level that yields a smaller molar ratio of the concentrations than those relevant to the standard state conditions. Would the net free energy of coupled glucose breakdown and ATP synthesis be more or less favorable than the answer for net free energy of coupled glucose breakdown and ATP synthesis in organism in standard conditions. Please explain answer
