He computed the residual energy—the maximum that could conceivably have been available to the cell following poisoning. This residual was compared to the energy required to sustain the ion gradient, the latter calculable from the known sodium-leak rate. Using the most generous of assumptions, a conservative estimate gave an energy shortfall of 15 to 30 times (Ling, 1962). The pump energy needed to sustain the observed gradient, in other words, was concluded to be at least 15 to 30 times larger than the available energy supply.
