The smallest object that can be resolved with a microscope depends on wavelength
BME Recap of last week:
Diffusion and drift.
We can model the cell membrane as a capacitor.
*Acts like a capacitor.
Assume contribution from B field are small. No real time variation. Assume this as a
1 dimensional electrostatics problem.
Based on Far
