Question

In the Goldman equation, Ki and Nai are on the top of the
equation ratio, but Cli is on the bottom. Why?

Summary:

State the important principles that you have discovered in
working with the Goldman equation using the Nernst/Goldman
simulator.

Answer #1

Ans .(i) Because the Cl- ions are actually reversed - the " inside " term is on the top and " outside " term is on the bottom - this happens because chloride is a negative ion , so it has the reverse effect on the voltage potential.

(ii) Goldman equation is an equation used to calculate the electrical equilibrium potential across the cell membrane in the presence of more than one ions taking into account the selectivity of membrane's permeability. It is derived from the Nernst equation.

Plot the voltage of the cell using the original parameters for
Na, K and Cl, and changing sodium permeability from 1 to 10, 100,
1000 and up to 9999. Will the voltage keep increasing positively as
the permeability to sodium is increasing? Why?

(generaly tell me why is this important)

4) Recall that after the Na+ channels open the K+ channels open.
Again to make the calculations relatively simple, solve the Goldman
equation again with all resting conditions EXCEPT a 100 fold
increase in potassium permeability. (2 points) [Hints, first, while
I always stress the importance of units, in this case the
simplified equation uses lumped constants (RT/F) and thus the units
are factored in – so you can, this time, ignore the units. Second,
remember that Cl- is a...

5) A new drug has been discovered that completely opens the
voltage-gated potassium channels. If this drug is used
experimentally on an isolated axon, the membrane potential can be
easily measured. Assume that this experiment provided the following
results. The extracellular Na+ is 145 mM and the extracellular K+
is 4mM, the measured membrane potential in the presence of the drug
is -94mV. Using this information, calculate the intracellular K+
concentration.
To solve this equation, you will need to use...

1. The company uses Goldman Sachs for its investment banker and
Peter Fields, a Goldman Sachs managing director, has suggested that
McCormick consider on of two choices for financing. There is an
innovative hedge fund group that will loan $350 million to Mc
Cormick for 10 years in a zero interest bond. At the end, McCormick
will owe $550 million. The fee to Goldman will be paid by the hedge
fund. Use the PV function to calculate the
present value...

Using a PHET light waves stimulator: Turn only bottom light on
then measure how long it takes for the center of the trough of the
wave to be at that point you marked. Turn the bottom light off and
allow the waves to dissipate. Next, turn on the light at the top
and allow the simulation to run for exactly the amount of time
measured. Record the “state of the wave” at your marked point. Is
it a trough, a...

Using the internet as a resource
What do you think are the top three components that must
be included in an HRIS database?
For example, do you think an Applicant Tracking module
is a vital component?
Or maybe you think a mobile app component is more
important.
Why did you select those top three (3)
components?
How could an HR professional use the information from
each of the three (3) components you selected to enhance or improve
upon their current...

2). Your friend is interning in a research lab at CERN in
Switzerland. The lab they are working in is studying a family of
mice named the Quarks. The family consists of parents named Up and
Down, monozygotic twins Charm and Strange, and their third child
Bottom. In other words, Bottom is Charm and Strange’s little
brother (and all three mice are the offspring of Up and Down). At
the immunoglobulin heavy chain locus Up is homozygous for
