Equations: Stokes-Einstein Equation: kB = Boltzmann constant (1.38x10-23 J Kº) T = Absolute temperature η = viscosity of the medium (0.001 for water in SI units) r = radius of the sphere n= “dimensionality” (1D, 2D or 3D) Critical Concentration: Michaelis-Menten Equation: Shows saturation at high substrate concentrations Vmax – rate at saturation for a given enzyme concentration in moles per unit time
