How the Sodium Potassium Pump Works?

The sodium potassium pump is a chemical process by which ATP in a cell wall moves sodium outside a cell while bringing in potassium. ATP basically binds with 3 sodium atoms through phosphorylation causing them to be exposed outside the cell and eventually eliminated. This elimination results in the binding of two potassium atoms outside of the cell. When this happens desphosphorylation occurs bringing the two potassium atoms inside the cell.
