    See the attachments.
    1.In an animal cell respiring aerobically, the pyruvic acid is further transformed , and the pair of hydogen ions held by NAD2H is passed on to the cytochrome system of the mitochondia, where each pair, in passing to oxygen generates 3 additional ATP molecules, or a total of 6, making total of 8 net ...
