Also you need to clarify - grow, or merely survive?

comment Enzyme Assay, absorbance change to concentration change
This looks correct to me, although it odd not to relate the activity to the amount of enzyme that was added to the reaction - the Vmax that you have calculated is a property of the exact assay conditions used.

comment Enzyme Assay, absorbance change to concentration change
No need for a standard curve if you have an extinction coefficient, as in this case.

comment Modelling how much cadmium a cell will be able to chelate with phytochelatins
If you know the stoichiometry and dissociation constant of the binding interaction this should a straightforward task. If the aim is to discover the stoichiometry via modelling, it's unclear to me how that could work. I'm probably missing something - maybe you could expand your question, and/or make it more specific?

comment Calories burn rate calculation — scientific studies
If you are measuring a rate (calories burnt per until time) why would the time matter - are you suggesting that the rate varies over the period of exercise?
