By Peter Gnadig, G. Honyek, K. F. Riley

This article will advance a scholars skill to use the legislation of physics to sensible occasions and difficulties that yield extra simply to intuitive perception than to complicated arithmetic. those difficulties, selected nearly solely from classical (non-quantum) physics, are posed in available nontechnical language and require the scholar to pick the suitable framework within which to investigate the location. The publication can be useful to undergraduates getting ready for «general physics» papers. a few physics professors can even locate the tougher questions demanding. The mathematical must haves are minimum and don't transcend straightforward calculus. This exciting booklet of physics difficulties will turn out instructive, tough and enjoyable.

Introduction to Astronomy and Cosmology (Manchester Physics Series)

Этот учебник возник из курса лекций, который автор разрабатывал для студентов-физиков и студентов-астрономов первого года обучения в Манчестерском университете. Когда было предположено, что этот курс должны пройти все студенты, а не только те, кто приехал, чтобы изучать астрофизику, несколько преподавателей-физиков почувствовали, что такой курс не очень подойдет для студентов физики.

Because mitochondrial DNA has a limited ability to repair itself when it is damaged, these mutations tend to build up over time. A buildup of somatic mutations in mitochondrial DNA has been associated with some forms of cancer and an increased risk of certain age-related disorders such as heart disease, Alzheimer disease, and Parkinson disease. Additionally, research suggests that the progressive accumulation of these mutations over a person’s lifetime may play a role in the normal process of aging.

A type of RNA called transfer RNA (tRNA) assembles the protein, one amino acid at a time. Protein assembly continues until the ribosome encounters a “stop” codon (a sequence of three bases that does not code for an amino acid). The flow of information from DNA to RNA to proteins is one of the fundamental principles of molecular biology. ” Through the processes of transcription and translation, information from genes is used to make proteins. Can Genes Be Turned On and Off in Cells? Each cell expresses, or turns on, only a fraction of its genes.

Some cancer cells also have changes in the number or structure of their chromosomes. Because these changes occur in somatic cells (cells other than eggs and sperm), they cannot be passed from one generation to the next. Why Are Some Genetic Conditions More Common in Particular Ethnic Groups? Some genetic disorders are more likely to occur among people who trace their ancestry to a particular geographic area. People in an ethnic group often share certain versions of their genes, which have been passed down from common ancestors.
