The 1st textual content of its variety, organic PHysics synthesizes info from the constructing box of organic physics. The textual content specializes in new leads to molecular cars, self-assembly and single-molecule manipulation,integrating those themes with classical effects. The textual content additionally presents foundational fabric from the rising box of nanotechnology. outfitted round a self-contained center, the textual content is aimed toward undergraduate scholars who've taken twelve months of calculus-based physics. also, there are "Track-2" sections that include extra complicated fabric for senior physics majors and graduate scholars.

Example text

Electrical potential energy stored in a capacitor E = 12 q 2 /C. capacitance of a parallel-plate capacitor of area A and thickness D, C = Aε/D. 2. 2). 3. 11). 12). org/btol/ 26 Chapter 1. 2 There is an important elaboration of the rule that atoms of a given species are all identical. Atoms that behave identically chemically may nevertheless subdivide into a few distinct classes of slightly different mass, the “isotopes” of that chemical element. Thus we specified ordinary hydrogen above, to acknowledge the existence of two other, heavier forms (deuterium and tritium).

The same thing holds for other familiar functions, like sin, cos, ln, .. . One way to understand this rule is to notice that ex = 1 + x + 12 x2 + · · ·. According to the previous 18 Chapter 1. What the ancients knew [[Student version, December 8, 2002]] paragraph, this sum makes no sense unless x is dimensionless. ) Suppose you run into a new constant in a formula. For example the force between two charged objects in vacuum is 1 q1 q2 f= . 8) 4πε0 r2 What are the dimensions of the constant ε0 ?

Suppose the person does mechanical work at a steady rate of 50 W over 10 hours. We can define the body’s efficiency as the ratio of mechanical work done to excess energy intake (beyond the BMR calculated in (b)). Find this efficiency. 9 · 1026 W. At Earth this gives an incident energy flux 28 Chapter 1. 4 kW/m2 . In this problem we’ll investigate whether any other planets in our solar system could support the sort of water-based life we find on Earth. Consider a planet orbiting at distance d from the Sun (and let de be Earth’s distance).
