Biophysical Chronology

Since the history of physics has been largely ignored in the text, we present the following chronology of biological, chemical and physical developments which are relevent to the material we have covered. Most entries reflect the first discovery or correct understanding of a phenomenon or principle.

If you have stumbled on this page, and the equations look funny (or you just want to know where you are!), see the College Physics for Students of Biology and Chemistry home page.
