Biological Physics with New Art by David Goodsell: Errata

"The laws of nature will defend themselves;--but error--(he would add, looking earnestly at my mother)--error, Sir, creeps in thro' the minute holes and small crevices which human nature leaves unguarded." -- Laurence Sterne, Tristram Shandy
The current version of the book is the 8th printing (2017). I'll be grateful to hear of any errors not already on this list.
Thanks, Philip Nelson

Errata to the 8th printing:

Clarifications and small corrections:

Figure 7.3: The gray rectangles represent the actual extent of the large objects. The dashed lines indicate the larger extent of the depletion zone(s).


Appendix A: The SI was revised in 2018:

Errata to the 5th printing:

Big corrections:

Figure 7.10: Both in the figure and in the caption, the curve that rises on the left involves the charge density divided by the proton charge e, not the permittivity epsilon, as seen from eq 7.29.

Clarifications and small corrections:

Chapter 1 further reading: the web site has been discontinued.
Fig 2.24: The caption states that initiation and elongation factors are not shown. Actually, they are visible flanking the tRNA at the lower left of the figure.
Problem 2.4: The web site listed has been discontinued. Use .
Problem 2.5: The web site has been discontinued.
Page 83, Fig 3.7: The horizontal axis should be labeled u-bar, not u.
Example solution on page 209: In part (b), The temperature T should be replaced by the larger final temperature T_eq. Moreover, the force f should be replaced by the smaller f_eq (force decreases as the spring extends).
Problem 7.7 is stated in a potentially misleading way. You are to expand each of the exponentials on the right side of the Poisson-Boltzmann equation out to linear order in the potential function.
Fig 10.2b page 406: time axis labels should be 0.5, 1.5.
Fig 12.17 caption refers to Fig 12.6c but should instead refer to Fig 12.12c.
Problem C.6.13: Remark: In this problem, you are asked to treat the electromagnetic field as a plane wave and the bead's response as a point electrostatic dipole. Neither of these approximations is accurate for visible light with beam width and particle diameter as given in the problem, so your answer will not be quantitatively precise. However, this approach to the problem does give the right order of magnitude for the force, and explains why any transverse force at all will arise.

Spelling etc:
