Recall that the Na+ concentration is significantly higher outside the cell than inside the cell. The symporter couples the "downhill" transport of two Na+ ions into the cell to the "uphill" transport of glucose into the cell.

If the Na+ concentration outside the cell ([Na+]out) is 159 mM and that inside the cell ([Na+]in) is 17.0 mM, and the cell potential is −49.0 mV (inside negative), calculate the maximum energy available for pumping a mole of glucose into the cell. Assume the temperature is 37 °C.
