Define oxidative phosphorylation as the process that couples the oxidation of NADH and FADH2 to the production of ATP
- Oxidative phosphorylation is the process that connects the oxidation of NADH and FADH2 to production of ATP.
- The chemical potential energy contained in the NADH and FADHs molecules used in the Electron Transport Chain is converted to ATP.
