Cellular Respiration

Question:
A glucose molecule is completely broken down to carbon dioxide & water in the glycolysis & citric acid cycle, but together these two processes yield only few molecules of ATP. What happened to most of the energy that the cell obtains from oxidation of glucose?
Answer:
The electrons obtained from the oxidation of glucose are temporarily stored in NADH & FADH2.
The energy derived from the oxidation of NADH & FADH2 is used to drive the electron transport chain & chemiosmotic synthesis of ATP.
