protons

stable elementary particles having the smallest known positive charge, found in the nuclei of all elements. The proton mass is less than that of a neutron. A proton is the nucleus of the light hydrogen atom, i.e., the hydrogen ion.

Is there any difference between different fertilizers?

... of elements from both sources. For example, whether nitrogen from organic or chemical fertilizer contains nitrogen atoms with same number of protons, neutrons and electrons. I think food produced by using organic and chemical fertilizer is almost same if we avoid the usage of harmful pesticides. ...

FADH2 in the Electron Transport Chain?

... oxidised, losing its electrons to the reduction of O to H20. In doing so, it changes to a lower energy state and the excess energy is used to pump protons from the matrix of the mitochondria to the outer membrane of the mitochondria. What I don't understand is what happens to FADH2. Is it exactly ...

ETC - purpose of having different dehydrogenases?

... complexes (more specifically, NDH-1 and NDH-2). One major difference between the two is the fact that NDH-1 is a coupling site (so pumps out protons while transferring electrons) while NDH-2 is not; will not pump out any protons. As a result of this, the NET ATP produced will be different. ...

Re:

... discharge' - which is noted for the fact that 'corona' is derived from the solar corona. In a converse point, solar activity streams a lot of protons (and thus positive ions) - which is a natural source of positive ions. If solar activity can generate positive ions naturally, then it wouldn't ...
