Please see the attached document. Thanks.

Energy Span of the Respiratory Chain: Electron transfer in the mitochondrial respiratory chain may be represented by the net reaction equation:

NADH + H+ + ½ O2 H2O + NAD+

(a) Calculate the value of ∆E'0 for the net reaction of mitochondrial electron transfer. Use E'0 values from table below.
(b) Calculate ∆G'0 for this reaction.
(c) How many ATP molecules can theoretically be generated by this reaction if the free energy of ATP synthesis under cellular conditions is 52kj/mol?
