Here is the answer for the question – **Imagine you changed the concentration of K+ outside a neuron such that the resting membrane potential changed to -80 mV (from the normal resting value of -70 mV). What have you changed?**. You’ll find the correct answer below

### Imagine you changed the concentration of K+ outside a neuron such that the resting membrane potential changed to -80 mV (from the normal resting value of -70 mV). What have you changed?

A. the electrical gradient for K+

B. the concentration gradient for K+

C. the electrical gradients and concentration gradients for both Na+ and K+.

D. the electrical gradient for K+ and the concentration gradient for K+

**The Correct Answer is**

**D. the electrical gradient for K+ and the concentration gradient for K+**

### Reason Explained

D. the electrical gradient for K+ and the concentration gradient for K+ is correct for Imagine you changed the concentration of K+ outside a neuron such that the resting membrane potential changed to -80 mV (from the normal resting value of -70 mV). What have you changed?
