A nerve signal is transmitted through a neuron when an excess of ions suddenly enters the axon, a long cylindrical part of the neuron. Axons are approximately in diameter, and measurements show that about ions per meter (each of charge ) enter during this process. Although the axon is a long cylinder, the charge does not all enter everywhere at the same time. A plausible model would be a series of point charges moving along the axon. Consider a length of the axon and model it as a point charge. If the charge that enters each meter of the axon gets distributed uniformly along it, how many coulombs of charge enters a length of the axon?
