They can be:

3. Three Phosphates
2. Tricarboxylic acid cycle(TCA) (Kreb's cycle)
3. Respiratory chain, electron transport -(makes most ATP)
oxygen is not a final electron acceptor
Hydrogen ions diffuse back through ATP synthase -rotating it cause the formation of ATP
-Yields small amount of ATP (2 ATP during glycolysis)
-formation of acid and gas and other products by the action of various bacteria on pyruvic acid
