Establishing Equilibrium Potential Separation of charges creates an electrical gradient This is the membrane potential (Vm) Ions Fow across membrane following the gradient This Fow creates a concentration gradient ±low continues until the electrical gradient “balances” the concentration gradient This Vm is the equilibrium potential for that ion Therefore. .. Either the concentration of the ion establishes the membrane potential Or the membrane potential establishes the relative concentrations of the ion K+ K+ 140 mM

So, the Factors that contribute to the resting potential oF a cell include: Which ions are permeable at rest The equilibrium potential oF these ions The relative permeability oF each ion The Goldman Hodgkin Katz Equation includes permeability and assumes monovalent ions...
