The following statements relate to a description of a particular kind of biological cell (neurons) at rest. Complete the following statements by selecting the MOST CORRECT option for each of the blanks:
At rest, the intracellular space of cells is compared to the extracellular space. This is because there are located on the of cells.
The Nernst equation predicts that would result if the membrane was permeable to . In other words, the Nernst potential value for corresponds to the potential at which the electrical gradient exactly the concentration gradient.
The Nernst equation is good at predicting this potential at high [K+]o, but not at low [K+]o. This is because the .
