During this entire heritage, Donald Hill opens a window on medieval and classical engineering. The e-book specializes in on Greece, Rome and medieval Western Europe, but in addition contains attention-grabbing details on heart jap technology.

Documenting over 1800 years, Donald Hill illustrates how classical and medieval engineers designed early irrigation structures, dams, bridges, clocks and the way they harnessed the ability of either water and wind. operating principally with out a quantified, medical foundation for his or her designs, those early engineers studied the homes of fabrics and how within which fluids and solids behaved in sure stipulations. They then utilized this data to successfully clear up difficulties. This attention-grabbing learn records over 1800 years of early engineering.

Example text

The two fatty acid ‘tails’ may both be saturated, unsaturated, or adopt one of each form. 1, in some phospholipids the ‘head’ of the molecule may be increased in size with the addition of an amine which can ionise to the hydrophilic form NH3þ. Phospholipids can spontaneously form sheets of bilayers, two molecules thick, in an aqueous environment. 2, the hydrocarbon tails keep away from the water by aligning themselves in the middle of the bilayer structure. The close packing of the hydrocarbon tails is stabilised by van der Waals interactions, and the fluidity of the bilayer interior is influenced by the number of CÀ ÀC double bonds in the hydrocarbon structures of the tails.

The acidic carboxyl group can dissociate to give an ionised ÀCOOÀ and Hþ, whereas the basic amino groups can accept a proton to give NH3þ. e. pH lowered) there will be a relatively large number of Hþ in the solution, so that the probability of a proton neutralising a carboxyl group (ÀCOOÀ þ Hþ ! ÀCOOH) will be greater than the probability of a hydroxyl ion removing the extra proton from an ionised amino group. Raising the pH of the solution (making it basic) will have the opposite effect. At a certain pH of the solution (the isoelectric point), depending on the relative number of carboxyl and amino side-groups, the net charge of a protein molecule will be zero.

E) 2 mM KCl solution. 3. What are the properties of water that make it a good solvent for ions and molecules in a cell? 4. Describe the formation of hydrogen bonds in water. If water did not contain hydrogen bonds would it exist as a solid, liquid or gas at room temperature? 5. Hydrochloric acid is an example of a strong acid, and sodium hydroxide is classed as a strong base. They can be assumed to fully dissociate (ionise) when dissolved in water. On this basis, calculate the pH of the following solutions: (a) 1 M HCl (b) 1 mM HCl (c) 10 mM NaOH.
