Physics and Biology : From Molecules to Life

Do you frequently lose your keys? you can find during this e-book the simplest technique to locate them, or a minimum of the single deduced from statistical physics. what's the hyperlink with biology? a few proteins use a similar technique to locate their objective within a dwelling phone. this instance illustrates one of many many hyperlinks among physics and biology.

Time, Astronomy, and Calendars in the Jewish Tradition

The examine of time, astronomy, and calendars, has been heavily intertwined within the background of Western tradition and, extra fairly, Jewish culture. Jewish curiosity in astronomy was once fostered via the Jewish calendar, which used to be in line with the classes of the solar and the moon, when astronomy, in flip, ended in a greater knowing of the way time may be reckoned.

The cantilever plus glue is then allowed to come into contact with the particle, removing it from the surface of the slide. The glue is allowed to set and the probe is then ready for use. An alternative method also used is to place a drop of glue on the end of the cantilever using a fine wire. Another wire is then used to pick up a particle using capillary adhesion and then place it on the glued end of the lever [4]. 2 Illustration of a typical micromanipulator set-up.
