Cell Respiration - 11How much ATP do we get from oxidizing glucose in aerobic cellularrespiration?•The electrons and H+from each NADH produced in the Krebs cycle and theoxidation of pyruvate to acetyl Co-A provides sufficient energy to produceabout 3 ATP by chemiosmosis.•The electrons and H+from each FADH2produced in the Krebs cycle providessufficient energy to produce about 2 ATP by chemiosmosis(FAD is a lower energy electron transfer molecule and enters thetransport chain in mid-chain, rather than at the start)•The electrons and hydrogen from each NADH from Glycolysis provides sufficientenergy to produce about 2 ATP
