Fill in the values for the following table: (It would be a good idea to memorize/ understand this for the exams) Conc. Inside Cell Conc. Outside Cell Down Gradient Flow Effect on Membrane Potential K+ 3.5-5 mmol Na+ 140 mmol Cl- 5-10 mmol Ca++ 1 mmol d. Fill in the following table [Ion]in: (mM) [Ion]out: (mM) Eion: (mV) Driving force (mv): Vm= - 70 mV Driving force (mV) Vm = + 100 mv Direction Vm= -70 Direction Vm = + 100 K= 150 1.5 Na= 14 140 Cl = 100 10 Ca= 0.0001 1 Brief Review of Logs: (Can look at this later if it’s been a while since you did math) - If log( base 10) X = a then 10^a = x - This means that….. o Log (1/100) = - 2 o Log (100) = 2 o Log ( 1/10) = -1 o Usually on the exam you will get numbers that are fairly easy to do logs with…if you are worried about wasting time thinking about this it may be a good idea to just go ahead and memorize the common ones Finding the Driving Force:

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
