How theoretical are we being? In order to know that, you would need to
know the resistance of the cell membrane along the entire dendritic
tree (if assuming completely passive), and the distribution and nature
of voltage gated channels(if that assumption is not being made). These
things are somewhat unknowable, though we have pretty good estimates
for some cells.
