Solution :-

Impulse conduction in myelinated
nerve fibre
Impulse conduction in a
unmyelinated nerve fibre
If a node of Ranvier lacks a myelin
coating, depolarisation occurs.
The nerve fibres are depolarized
along their entire length.
There is a jump between different nodes
of Ranvier regarding action potential
Fibers carry action potential along
their entire length.
The pace of conduct is faster. The pace of conduct is slower.
It requires less energy. Energy is required in greater
amounts.
