Although ATP production is very important for mitochondria, little is known about the actual rate of production and the value of "unit of currency" for mitochondrial energy transactions. "Unit of currency" for all transactions in general is named "quantum" in Physics, and no value of ATP quantum is accurately given in bibliography, other than rough estimates. This work focuses to calculating produced energy unit in mitochondrial metabolism (Quantum for ATP, or QATP for sort) and the rate of ATP
