... hundreds, they are not interested in partiall pathways (like if half of the pyruvate was degraded before it was stopped due to lack of NAD+ and FAD:) Glycolysis will definitelly take part. Probably also the pyruvate decarboxylation. However, the TCA cycle is questionable, because with 100 molecules ...

FADH2 in the Electron Transport Chain?

You're probably not learning the detailed version, are you? If it contains 2 hydrogens, it must release 2 H+, so FADH2 -> FAD + 2H+ + 2e-

Is it exactly the same process, just with a smaller number of ATPs being produced? Would it be correct to say that, as with the NADH, the FADH2 ...
