    Explain why the arrival of reduced FAD at the electron transport chain results in fewer ATP molecules being made than when reduced NAD arrives.

    This question is 8 marks.

    Not really sure...please can anyone help?

    EDIT: It's alrite, I got it, thanks

    errr... because electrons from NAD is passed to NAD which gives out one ATP, and the rest of the path of the transport chain is the same (I think). So you get 2 molecules of ATP per FAD, and 3 per NAD.
