→ Each Acetyl CoA Produces 10 ATP

→ Conversion of Acetoacetate to Acetoacetyl CoA leads to Loss of an ATP Production Step in TCA Cycle

→ Conversion of Beta Hydroxy Butyrate to Acetoacetate generate 1 Mol of NADPH+H

Acetoacetate = (2 X 10)- 1 ATP = 19 ATP

Beta OH Butyrate = (2 X 10)- (1 ATP) + (2.5 ATP) = 21.5 ATP
