If [K+] inside a cell is 25 times greater than a [K+] outside the cell, what is the difference in potential between the two sides of the cell wall? (this is a "concentration cell" style of problem)

  • college Chemistry -

    Ecell = Eo - (0.0592/n)*log(dil/concd)
    Ecell = 0 - 0.0592*log(1/25) = ??
