Large electric fields in cell membranes cause ions to move through the cell wall. The field strength in a typical membrane is 1.0x10^7 N/C. What is the magnitude of the force on a calcium ion with charge +e?
E = F/q > F = Eq
The Attempt at a Solution
Well, I thought that +e = ~1, so F = 1.0x10^7(1)
So, F would equal 1.0x10^7, but that is not correct.
Can anyone help me?
