One problem is computing capacitance and resistance at the membrane given current and voltage over time.

When a time constant is measured:




the definite integral form 0 to infinity:



Since I is in units of Amperes and dt is in units of seconds, the dimensions of the integral are in Coulombs

If and then

coulombs


volts
farads

RC=1.5 mS

R = .44 giga ohms
