Cats' Paws and Catapults: Mechanical Worlds of Nature and People - Taschenbuch

ISBN: 0393319903

[SR: 110362], Paperback, [EAN: 9780393319903], W. W. Norton & Company, W. W. Norton & Company, Book, [PU: W. W. Norton & Company], W. W. Norton & Company, "Full of ideas and well-explained principles that will bring new understanding of everyday things to both scientists and non-scientists alike."―R. McNeill Alexander, Nature Nature and humans build their devices with the same earthly materials and use them in the same air and water, pulled by the same gravity. Why, then, do their designs diverge so sharply? Humans, for instance, love right angles, while nature's angles are rarely right and usually rounded. Our technology goes around on wheels―and on rotating pulleys, gears, shafts, and cams―yet in nature only the tiny propellers of bacteria spin as true wheels. Our hinges turn because hard parts slide around each other, whereas nature's hinges (a rabbit's ear, for example) more often swing by bending flexible materials. In this marvelously surprising, witty book, Steven Vogel compares these two mechanical worlds, introduces the reader to his field of biomechanics, and explains how the nexus of physical law, size, and convenience of construction determine the designs of both people and nature. "This elegant comparison of human and biological technology will forever change the way you look at each."―Michael LaBarbera, American ScientistCats' Paws and Catapults. Vogel examines the "mechanical worlds of nature and people" in such chapters as "The Stiff and the Soft" and "The Matter of Magnitude." Lots of line-drawing illustrations help readers understand the examples used to answer questions of animal and machine efficiency, design and repair. Vogel clearly loves the puzzles of biology--why, for instance, do daffodil stems bend at only one precise spot? This book is filled with intriguing answers to such hidden questions, and curious readers will eagerly dive into Vogel's investigations of whether nature or human design is superior and why the two technologies have diverged so much. --Therese Littleton, 720874, Anatomy, 13469, Biological Sciences, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 14545, Physics, 14547, Acoustics & Sound, 16052391, Applied, 13445, Astrophysics, 13514, Biophysics, 13567, Chaos Theory, 16052341, Chemical Physics, 13449, Cosmology, 14554, Dynamics, 226697, Electromagnetism, 13839, Electron Microscopy, 52215011, Energy, 52164011, Engineering, 16052121, Entropy, 226502, Gas Mechanics, 13605, Geophysics, 14561, Gravity, 14563, Light, 14567, Mathematical Physics, 14569, Mechanics, 13850, Microscopy, 14573, Nanostructures, 14576, Nuclear Physics, 14589, Optics, 16052671, Quantum Chemistry, 14581, Quantum Theory, 14592, Relativity, 14585, Solid-State Physics, 14596, System Theory, 14598, Time, 14601, Waves & Wave Mechanics, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 491704, Anatomy & Physiology, 491702, Biology & Life Sciences, 468216, Science & Mathematics, 465600, New, Used & Rental Textbooks, 2349030011, Specialty Boutique, 283155, Books, 491732, Physics, 468216, Science & Mathematics, 465600, New, Used & Rental Textbooks, 2349030011, Specialty Boutique, 283155, Books
