The hypothetical biochemical reaction A + B --> C + D requires 7.2 kcal/mole of energy to proceed. Could this reaction be coupled with the reaction ATP --> ADP + P (releases 7.2 kcal/mole of energy)?

    Yes, because the reaction involving ATP yields just enough energy to drive the reaction.
    No, because some of the energy liberated in the reaction involving ATP is released as heat.
    No, because ATP is never used when biochemical reactions are coupled.
    Yes, the reaction involving ATP produces more energy when coupled with another reaction.
