Description

Converstion between different motive formats and corresponding motive units (Gnaiger 2020 BEC MitoPathways)

.

Different formats can be chosen to express physicochemical quantities (motive entities or transformants) in corresponding motive units [MU]. Fundamental formats for electrochemical transformations are:

  • N: particle or molecular format of a count; MU = x
  • n: chemical or molar format of amount; MU = mol
  • e: electrical format of charge; MU = C
  • m: mass format; MU = kg
  • V: volume format; MU = m3
  • G: exergy format; MU = J
  • H: enthalpy format; MU = J
  • S: entropy format; MU = JยทK-1
