Temperature plasma

temperature, plasma

(Science: radiobiology) A measure of the random (thermal) kinetic energy of the ions or electrons in the plasma. The temperature of each component of a plasma depends on the mean kinetic energy of that component. An example of this is the fluorescent light bulb, which is an example of a weakly-ionised plasma where the electrons are at temperatures of tens of thousands of degrees, whereas the ions and neutrals are much cooler (so that you can touch the bulb without being burned).

See: atomic temperature, electron temperature, ion temperature.

Re: Why is hydrophobic core of plasma membrane a barrier to ions

... water. Systems tend to stay in their more stable states (unless there is sufficient energy about to lift them out of their stable states). At room temperature, there is not enough available energy to strip away the water and pop the ion across the lipid barrier. This is another way of saying that ...

Na/K Pump in cold conditions

On the plasma membrane, there are Na and K diffuse passively according to their gradients. Then ... If that stopped working, only the passive diffusion would be at work and since it is temperature independent (Q10=1), the gradients inside and outside the cell will equalize. ...
