Proton gradient

How does it work?

The proton gradient works by H+ moving down its concentration gradient. By moving with their gradient, the protons cause the ATP synthase spin which catalyzes the conversion of ADP to ATP.
So its like a flow of water that powers a water wheel that allows for ADP to become ATP.
