Proton-motive Force (pmf): refers to ΔG stored in a proton gradient; has two components:
1. Chemical potential energy (ΔpH) - difference in H+ concentration across the membrane
2. Electrical potential energy (Δψ) -results from charge imbalance when H+ is transferred without a counter ion
The following statements concern the relationship between mitochondrial hydrogen ion concentration and energy storage as ATP during oxidative phosphorylation. Classify each statement as either accurate or inaccurate.
