How much energy is needed for the Na/K pump to move 3 Na out and 2 K in when
Nai (Na inside)= 9.2mM, Nao (outside)= 115, Ki (K inside)= 135mM and Ko (K outside)= 3mM?
Include the effects of membrane potential; it will have to be calculated based on the given ion
concentrations and PNa/Pk of 0.013.
Please see the attached file for the complete solution.

Unless otherwise noted, assume below that:
R= 1.99 cal mol^-1 deg^-1
Faraday's Constant= 23,062 cal volt^-1 equiv ...
