Cell Respiration, Kreb's Cycle & Beyond

Cell respiration has three parts: glycolysis, the Krebs cycle, and the electron transport chain. Where in the cell is each found, the molecule(s) that enter each, the molecules at the end of each, and the number of ATPs harvested from each?

...is occurs in the mitochondrial matrix.

The Kreb's Cycle:
series of reactions that modifies and regenerates the original reactants. For every acetyl CoA molecule you get 3NADH, 1FADH2, 1ATP. Anytime NADH is formed, a redox reaction occurred.
2 Pyruvate----NADH + CO2-----acetyl CoA----oxaloacetic acid and citric acid
from oxaloacetic acid-----malic ...
