Em = EC = −92 mV QUESTION 3 Consider a spherical lipid vesicle of membrane thickness 10 9 m and diameter of 10 6 m that encapsulates a 100mM solution of glucose (MD ~ 10 9 m, MW of 180 g/mol) and is placed in a 25°C bath containing 2 mM glucose. Assume that the interior and exterior of the lipid vesicle are osmotically matched, such that the osmotic pressure across the membrane is zero. (20 total) A. If the partition coefficient, k, is 0.0015 and the viscosity, η , is 0.001 N s/m2, calculate the steady state flow rate of glucose across the membr...
