K+ is more abundant inside the cell and thus has a propensity to move outwards. It has an equilibrium potential of -80 mV. Na+ is more abundant extracellularly and thus has a propensity to move inwards. It has an equilibrium potential of 58 mV. The resting membrane potential of a cell is about -70 mV. So, K+ moves out (more towards its equilibrium potential) and Na+ moves in (more towards its equilibrium potential). The pumps throw out the Na+ and bring back in K+ thus maintaining their concentration and hence the membrane potential.
Now if I suddenly remove the pump from the cell, what would happen? Will the cell moves towards K+'s equilibrium potential or towards Na+'s equilibrium potential? I know that the answer is that the cell will discharge and have a membrane potential of 0 mv, but I don't understand why.
