Question

Calculate the capacitance per unit length of an axon.

(a) Calculate the capacitance per unit length of an axon of radius 4.9 µm. The membrane acts as an insulator between the conducting fluids inside and outside theneuron. The membrane is 6.5 nm thick and has a dielectric constant of 7.0. (Note: The membrane is thin compared to the radius of the axon, so the axon can be treatedas a parallel plate capacitor.)
