Front Cover
Wiley, Feb 4, 1976 - Science - 464 pages
Designed to supplement and complement any standard biochemistry text or lecture notes, this book helps provide a balanced picture of modern biochemistry by use of elementary mathematics in understanding properties and behavior of biological molecules. It provides a balanced picture of modern biochemistry by using elementary mathematics to explore the properties and behavior of biological molecules. The text discusses such topics as:
* Aqueous Solutions and Acid-Base Chemistry
* Chemistry of Biological Molecules
* Bioenergetics
* Enzymes
* Spectrophotometry and Other Optical Methods
* Isotopes in Biochemistry.

Sample problems are solved completely in a step-by-step manner, and the answer to all practice problems are given at the end of the book. With Biochemical Calculations, 2nd Edition , students will gain confidence in their ability to handle mathematical problems, discovering that biochemistry is more than memorization of structures and pathways.
