His Brother's Keeper: A Story from the Edge of Medicine

Stephen Heywood was once twenty-nine years previous whilst he discovered that he used to be death of ALS -- Lou Gehrig's disorder. nearly in a single day his older brother, Jamie, grew to become himself right into a genetic engineer in a quixotic race to therapy the incurable. His Brother's Keeper is a robust account in their tale, as they shuttle jointly to the sting of medication.

The Elements: A Visual Exploration of Every Known Atom in the Universe

An eye-opening, unique selection of stunning, never-before-seen photographic representations of the 118 parts within the periodic desk.

The parts are what we, and every little thing round us, are made from. yet what number parts has somebody really obvious in natural, uncombined shape? the weather offers this infrequent chance. in keeping with seven years of analysis and images, the photographs during this e-book make up the main entire, and visually arresting, illustration to be had to the bare eye of each atom within the universe. equipped so as of visual appeal at the periodic desk, every one aspect is represented via a range that features a lovely, full-page, full-color picture that the majority heavily represents it in its purest shape. for instance, at -183°C, oxygen turns from a drab gasoline to a stunning light blue liquid.

Also integrated are interesting proof, figures, and tales of the weather in addition to information at the houses of every, together with atomic weight, density, melting and boiling aspect, valence, electronegativity, and the yr and placement during which it used to be stumbled on. a number of extra pictures exhibit each one point in a bit of altered kinds or as utilized in a number of sensible methods. The element's place at the periodic desk is pinpointed on a mini rendering of the desk and an illustrated scale of the element's boiling and/or melting issues seems to be on every one web page besides a density scale that runs alongside the ground.

Packed with attention-grabbing info, this mixture of good technological know-how and lovely creative pictures is the precise present ebook for each sentient creature within the universe.

The science of ethanol

This e-book covers all aspects regarding the construction and use of ethanol. subject matters contain the optimization of uncooked fabrics, power, capital, technique model-based desktop keep an eye on, and human assets to supply ethanol. It compares and contrasts procedures to organize ethanol utilizing biotechnology methods to arrange ethanol from chemical synthesis.

6mm Cub. 48 electric stress constants 7. ), making it impossible to generalize a priori about whether a given material will be piezoelectric unless its crystallographic point group is known. 25) Di = ~ E j + euSj, in which ety are the piezoelectric stress constants, having units of charge/(iength) 2, Ei are the electric field components, Di are the electrical displacement components, and 6;j are the permittivity constants. The above equations, known as the piezoelectric constitutive relations, completely describe the interplay of stress, strain, and electric field in a piezoelectric solid [6].

Thus, P = Uv. , one in which P is constant. 411) where vo and Uo denote unperturbed propagation velocity and energy density, 32 2. 8 Energy stored per unit volume is dependent upon incident power flow and propagation velocity. respectively. 48 represents a fundamental relation between wave velocity and energy density for a system excited at a given frequency: the fractional change in wave velocity is equal to the negative of the fractional change in wave energy density. This may seem reasonable if one considers that in a system excited at a given frequency, the wavelength adjusts so that the peak kinetic energy equals the peak potential energy of the wave.

In general, perturbations change both energy storage and power dissipation and thus result in a combination of velocity and attenuation changes. The manner in which the propagation of the wave is described is therefore important and will be discussed here briefly. 34 2. 56) where ~, is a complex propagation factor representing both attenuation and wavenumber: •y = ot + jk = ct + jo~. 59) in which k0 is the unperturbed wavenumber. The latter makes clear that Aot/k and AV/Vo are consistently normalized orthogonal components of changes in the complex propagation factor 3, caused by a generalized perturbation [4].
