Question: im calculating the equilibrium potentials of sodium ions and potassium...

Question details

I'm calculating the equilibrium potentials of sodium ions and potassium ions using the Nernst equation. In the problem I just did, I calculated Ena= +69.9 mV and Ek=-92.0 mV.

The next part of the question asks, "If the conditions are the same as above, at which membrane potential would you expect the movement of the Na and K ions to cancel each other out and there be no net change in membrane potential?"

Do I average their equilibrium potentials or is it more complicated than that?
