Unformatted text preview: Δ G = - 6.42 kJ/mol + (-4.83 kJ/mol) Δ G = - 11.25 kJ/mol Credit: 1 pt for correct equation (must includes membrane potential term); 1 point for correct identification of C2 and C1; 1 point for correct answer with units 3. 2 pts. Based on your calculations above, is it energetically favorable to couple the transport of leucine into the cell with the transport of Na+ into the cell. Why or why not? Yes, because the overall Δ G for the coupled transport is negative Credit: 1 pt for correct answer, 1 pt for correct reason. Please give credit based on the student’s answers to parts 1 and 2 4. 2 pts. Is this antiport, symport, or uniport? Symport ( 1 pt) because Na+ and Leucine are both moving into the cell (same direction) ( 1 pt)...
