The second part of the work deals with the solution of the equation system derived in the previous paper. This equation system describes the ratio between the shape of the membrane and its chemical composition. The energy of membrane particle was calculated. The forces were found transferring such particles in lateral direction, if the curvature of the membrane changes from one point to another. The shape of the membrane was calculated with the presence of clusters on it, the mechanical properties of which differ from the other part of the membrane. A detailed discussion was carried out about the relation between the composition and shape of the membrane and about the initiation of the membrane lateral organization. A great number of experimental data found in literature is analysed in terms of the theory presented.
