complete oxidation of 14 carbon for fatty acid produce energy

Dear Student, here in the oxidation, Total Acetyl CoA formed=n/2=14/2=7(Total energy from Acetyl CoA=7*12=84ATP), Total FADH2=n/2-1=6 (Total energy from FADH2=6*2=12ATP), Total NADH formed=n/2-1=14/2-1=6(Total energy obtained is 6*3=18ATP). SO, total ATP produced is 114ATP. So, answer is option (c). Remember these formulas are applicable only on fatty acids containing even no. Of Carbon atoms. Further details of beta oxidation are beyond your level that you would study at higher level. Regards
