"A medical microbiology textbook, useful for reference, expensive"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

The microbiology textbook that I use as a reference has many properties including volume, weight, flammability, ability to absorb heat according to its specific heat capacity. This is indicated by the equation q=mcΔT

Where q = quantity of heat in Joules (J)
m = mass of the substance in grams (g) *remember that 1 mL = 1 g
c = specific heat capacity

I would imagine that the specific heat capacity of this book is between 0 and 2. When I eventually work this out I will get back to you.

I also find it useful as a reference, mostly for microbiology. If it has any other utilities I will let you know. I am unsure of its utility as a barter object, this may depend on its specific heat capacity.



Providing a solid introduction to the essentials of diagnostic microbiology, this accessible, full-color text helps you develop the problem-solving skills necessary for success in the clinical setting. A reader-friendly, 'building block' approach to microbiology moves progressively from basic concepts to advanced understanding, guiding you through the systematic identification of etiologic agents of infectious diseases.
