Charge Density and Neuronal Cells--Help! The cell membrane if a typical nerve cell consists of an inner and outer wall separated by a distance of 0.10 µm. The electric field within the cell membrane is 7.0 x 105 N/C. Approximating the cell membrane as a parallel plate capacitor, determine the magnitude of the charge density on the inner and outer cell walls. E=charge density/Eo Q=charge density*Area I tried doing this problem by using E=Charge density/Eo and just solving for charge density. I'm not really quite sure how to find the area to use in the equation (I know its cylindrical, but I'm not sure how I can find the area with just the distance) Thank you!
