What does the area under a Maxwell Boltzmann Distribution curve represent

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

So I know that the y-axis is no. molecules

x-axis is energy of molecules

I also know that the area under the graph is proportional to the total no. of molecules in the system.

However, would I be correct in assuming the total area under the curve is equal to the total energy within a system. I concluded this because no. molecules * energy (at a point) should give the total energy within a system

Is this assumption correct?
