Investigations of living organisms have led biologists and physicians to introduce fundamental concepts, including Brownian motion, the First Law of Thermodynamics, Poiseuille's Law of fluid flow, and Fick's Law of diffusion into physics. Given the prominence of viscous forces within and around cells and the experience of identifying and quantifying such resistive forces, biophysical cell biologists have an unique perspective in discovering the viscous forces that cause moving particles to…

Evolution in real time

TLDR
It is shown that as biologists the authors can confidently base their theories and experiments on the assumption that time’s arrow is absolute and unidirectional, and this conclusion is consistent with biological, geological and physical observations.

The Relativity of Simultaneity: An Analysis Based on the Properties of Electromagnetic Waves

The determination of whether two distant events are simultaneous depends on the velocity of the observer. This velocity dependence is typically explained in terms of the relativity of space and time

Nature of Light from the Perspective of a Biologist What Is a Photon

The light which makes the plants grow and which gives us warmth has the double characteristics of waves and particles, and is found to exist ultimately of photons. Having carried the analysis of the

An Introduction to Theoretical and Applied Colloid Chemistry: “The World of Neglected Dimensions” The Chemistry of Colloids

AFTER reading the books the titles of which stand at the head of this article, one is inclined to ask whether the word “colloid” as it has come to be used does refer to a definable state of matter,

Living machinery

TLDR
Bionanotechnology points the reader to general principles of the biological nanoworld, and thus provides readers with guidance on the design of their own devices and systems, in the style of an excellent biochemistry textbook.

Quantum Electrodynamics

THE subject of quantum electrodynamics is extremely difficult, even for the case of a single electron. The usual method of solving the corresponding wave equation leads to divergent integrals. To
