Cyanide is a non-competitor inhibitor in the ETC. Does this mean it inhibits the enzyme Oxidase non-competitively from transporting the 2e- to the final acceptor which is 1/2 molecule of O2 to produce H2O? Or does it inhibit the final acceptor in another way?

If there is no information on what exactly cyanide inhibits then it does not matter. All you need to know is the effect. So the explanation you said sounds right to me. If you need any help on this topic or anything else use my resources on get revising or on here by clicking 'see more' in the 'study resources' box and clicking on 'a level' and use the filters.
