Maxwell-Boltzmann Distribution Calculations

  1. Jul 18, 2007 #1
    Dear Physics Forums members,

    The Maxwell-Boltzmann Distribution curves (obtained by calculation) allow one to statistically calculate the distribution of energies of molecules among a solution or mixture. My question relates strongly to Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics, however the reason I ask is to implement it into the use of Cellular Biology. This is clearly possible, as implementing chemistry into cellular biology is merely a case of considering the fact that cells are a membrane bound solution, that is, the environment in which the chemical interactions take place.
    My question is, would it be possible to gain statistical data of the kinetic energies of specific molecules within a cell (eg. cAMP-ase) and represent it upon a graph?
