A cell will be hypopolarized and less negative with which electrolyte disturbance?
Select Your Answer:
An increase in extracellular potassium will prevent potassium from rushing out of the cell.
The cell will be less negative and more excitable.
Potassium efflux is most responsible for the resting membrane potential.
