Action potential1

Action potential

  • Phases

    • Resting membrane potential

    • Depolarization

    • Repolarization

    • Hyperpolarization


Nernst equation

Nernst equation

  • Measures equilibrium potential

  • Depends on:

    • absolute temperature

    • valence

    • ratio of concentration gradients


Nernst equation1

Nernst equation

If [K]o = 0.01M and [K]I = 0.1M


Action potential2
