Blood contains 0.1 M Cl-. Brain tissue contains about 0.02 M Cl-.
(1) the G for the transport of Cl- from blood into brain cells
(2) the energy expended by brain cells in transporting Cl- outward against the concentration gradient. Assume a membrane potential of -75mV (inside).
Please see the attached file for the complete solution.
Thanks for using BrainMass.
Please help explain with detailed steps/description the following....
If needed: T=25°C
R= 1.99 cal mol^-1 deg^-1
Faraday's Constant= 23,062 cal volt^-1 equiv ^-1
Blood contains ...
The Free Energy for Transport of Cl- is calculated using a Membrane Potential. All calculations are shown in detail.
