Is this pH gradient alone sufficient enough to drive ATP synthesis based on Table 14-3?

Electron transport translocates protons across the mitochondrial membrane establishing a pH gradien Show more Electron transport translocates protons across the mitochondrial membrane establishing a pH gradient. The tendency of protons to diffuse back into the matrix is the driving force for ATP synthesis by ATP synthase. During oxidative phosphorylation by a suspension of liver mitochondria in a medium of pH 7.4 the pH of the matrix was measured as 7.7 and the membrane potential as 0.17 V Is this pH gradient alone sufficient enough to drive ATP synthesis based on Table 14-3? If not and this gradient represents 1 mol of protons how many moles of protons are needed to synthesize 1 ATP? Show less
