Protons Flowing Down Hill As Water Flows....

a: Chemiosmosis ~
b: hydroelectric power

What: Water stored high has a large amount of potential energy. Protons stored in high concentration separated from a space with low proton concentration form another form of potential energy; this is chemical potential energy. Water flows down hill through pipes to push turbines, protons flow down an electrochemical proton gradient to drive an ATP synthesis, which is an energy absorbing process.
