Problem 12PE

speed of propagation of the action potential (an electrical signal) in a nerve cell depends (inversely) on the diameter of the axon (nerve fiber). If the nerve cell connecting the spinal cord to your feet is 1.1 m long, and the nerve impulse speed is 18 m/s, how long does it take for the nerve signal to travel this distance?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step-by-step solution Step 1 of 2 The formula to find the speed is, Therefore, Here is the speed, is the distance and is the time.

Step 2 of 2
