Many of our ebooks are available through library electronic resources including these platforms:. Why do you switch from walking to running at a specific speed? Why do tall trees rarely blow over in high winds? And why does a spore ejected into air at seventy miles per hour travel only a fraction of an inch? Drawing on physics and mechanical engineering, Steven Vogel looks at how animals swim and fly, modes of terrestrial locomotion, organism responses to winds and water currents, circulatory and suspension-feeding systems, and the relationship between size and mechanical design. Early chapters and appendices introduce relevant physical variables for quantification, and problem sets are provided at the end of each chapter.
Physical World - Class 11th - Physics - NCERT
Steven Vogel, editor. Those who read the first edition, or are familiar with the other books by the same author e. However, there can be no doubt, this is a science book of the highest and finest quality. Students in biology and physics, including mechanical engineers, will find in this book a sound guideline for an alternative view of their respective disciplines. It is a source of inspiration, also for the interested layman, for further reflection on the realm of physics in the biological world.
The book may be found here , along with a PDF of the first chapter , and a preview of the rest. The book examines how organisms move and respond to various dynamic environments, making use of both fluid and solid mechanics. The book acts as an updated and integrated combination of Vogel's other texts, Life's Devices and Life in Moving Fluids.
