Abstract This article describes a computer method for calculating the values of the characteristics of which depend on the channels permeability of biomembranes. Calculations of ionic currents in solutions at different concentrations are presented, also calculated the energy profile of K+ channel founded in all biological systems for an ion moving along its axis.
