    1.If I double the diameter of a cell, by what factor does the capacitance of the membrane change?



    2. Help!



    3. The attempt at a solution

    It depends on the shape of the cell and the permittivity,geometry and structure of the surroundings.For an isolated spherical cell C is proportional to diameter.
