Homework Help: Calculating conductivity of the cell interior and the blood

  1. Sep 28, 2008 #1
    They give me a table of ion concentrations of the most common ions in the cell interior and in the blood. I am asked to calculate the conductivity of the cell interior and that of the blood. I have no idea how to calculate conductivity if I only know the concentrations. Here is the table I am provided with

    Ion, Ion concentration in cell, Blood
    K+, 140, 4
    Na+, 10, 145
    CL- , 5, 116

    Any help would be appreciated ASAP. This assignment is due tomorrow so I would really appreciate any advice!

    You need to show some work before we can help you. What have you tried; what do you know about such problems?
