### How to calculate Cell's Total Capacitance (not cm)?

Posted:

**Wed Jan 18, 2012 12:59 am**Hi,

I am interested in knowing about the calculation of cell's total capacitance (not specific membrane capacitance (cm)). Under the biophysical properties of a section, cm is specified but I wanted to know the calculation of total membrane capacitance.

Could you kindly let me know how to do this? As I am a learner, detailed explanation could be very helpful.
