Comments P.316 top paragraph: "The plasma membrane, a lipid bilayer composed of two regular layers of lipid molecules, is modeled as a membrane with a thickness of 10 nm [primary source]. Similarly, the nuclear envelope, a double lipid bilayer membrane, is modeled as a membrane with a thickness of 20 nm."
