These are just examples, don't know if this is the best format!!!
Question from Steve Koch
What did he say was kT in "biophysics units" again?
Answer from Steve Koch
I think he said about 4 pN - nm for room temperature--Skoch3 02:05, 19 January 2007 (EST)
Follow on from Steve
Today, Mike Pikaart was using "kcal / mol" which is the convenient unit for biochemistry. I do believe that room temperature (300 Kelvin) is about 0.6 kcal / mol. That is:
- 4 pN - nm = 0.6 kcal / mol = 1/40 eV
