Can you please assist in putting these muscle-action potential steps in order?? (The following steps down below are not in order)

-the enzymeacetylcholinesterase removes acetylcholine from the synaptic cleft

-Na+ enters the postsynaptic cell

-postsynaptic membrane begins to depolarize

-ACh unbinds from the ligand-gated Na+ channels, which then close

-If depolarization passes threshold, an action potential is generated along the postsynaptic membrane

-ACh binds to and then open ligand-gated Na+ channels on the postsynaptic membrane

-ACh is released and diffuses into the synaptic cleft

-Voltage gated Ca2+ channels in the presynaptic membrane open

-Calcium ions enter the presynaptic terminal

-An action potential arrives at the presynaptic terminal

-The neurotransmitter (ACh) is released from the pre-synaptic vesicles
