I needs some advice for anyone one who can help me on this:~

Nitrifying bacteria take nitrogen in the soil and convert it to ammonia and
ammonium ions. How does the Nitrosomonas and Nitrococcus bacteria use
ammonia or the ammonium ions to make energy?

It does not matter if the information is not specifically about Nitrococcus
and Nitrosomonas, just mainly regarding nitrifying bacteria and how they
make they energy trough chemosynthesis.

Anyhelp on this would be very very much appreciated.
