Voltage in the electron-transport chain

Post by hannahzarzar » Thu Jan 27, 2011 3:31 am

As the electron carriers transfer electrons "downhill" does the voltage (free energy) decrease? or does it the voltage refer to the hydrogen gradient to provide energy to generate ATP? I'm trying to figure out 2 things: 1- Does the voltage increase or decrease and 2- Is ATP related to the change in voltage and how?
