Unformatted text preview: Redox potential- the more positive the stand reduction potential the greater the frequency for the redox couples oxidized form to accept elections and become reduced.-Spontaneous delta E= spontaneous reaction (just the opposite as delta G) Nernst Equation • E=electron potential • F=faraday constant • The ratios are not enormous, that means we can get a fair idea of what’s going on without knowing the other variables. Look at table 15-1 Oxidative phosphorylation In mitochondria In cytoplasm Take electrons on NADH and combine it with oxygen to make water Complex 1 Function NADH is a 2 electron carrier...
