How many ATP molecules are synthesized when FADH 2 passes electrons to molecular oxygen?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The number of ATP molecules produced when FADH2 passes electrons to oxygen is to be predicted.

Concept introduction:

Oxidative phosphorylation is the third stage in the oxidation of food in which the oxidation of coenzymes NADH and FADH2 to NAD+ and FAD takes place and significant amount of energy is released.

Explanation of Solution

The third stage in the oxidation of food is oxidative phosphorylation in which the oxidation of coenzymes NADH and FADH2 to NAD+ and
