Water (R. H. Austin1)

  • Hans Frauenfelder
Part of the Biological and Medical Physics, Biomedical Engineering book series (BIOMEDICAL)


We didn’t know where to put this chapter. Water is the solvent of biology yet it is a very complex liquid. Certainly some discussion of water belongs in a book on the physics of proteins, but in order to get at the complexity of the liquid, one has to work through all the fundamentals that we have covered up to this point in the appendices. So, here is water.
