# Typographical Errors in the text "Physical Chemistry for the Life Sciences", 2nd Ed.

These errors are in the printing that Dr. Gutow has a copy of. Newer printings may have different errors, or have these corrected.

## Errors in the Body of the Text

• Page 60, solution to example 1.5.  In the expression for enthalpy change the phase of the glucose should be 's' not 'g'.
• Page 289, 3rd line from the bottom should read: "• when [A] << Kco, J = jmax[A]/(Kco)"
• Page 411 equation 11.4 should be to the (1/2) power not squared.

## End of Chapter Questions

• Exercise 2.25 refers to the exercise 2.24 when it should refer to the resources section.
• E 3.21 the units on the entropy row of the table is messed up.  The units should be J/mol/K.
• E 5.18  The product of the reaction should be CH3CH(OH)CO2- there's an extra H in the book.
• E 5.21  It appears the reaction in the question should be 2fd(red) + NADP+ + H+ → 2fd(ox) + NADPH.  The text has an extra H+ on the reactant side.
• E 6.35 the correct k(19˚C) = 1.78 x 10-4 M-1s-1 not 1.78 x 104 M-1s-1
• E 11.20 the second '(41)' Miller index should have a negative 1 for the 1 (1 with a bar over it).

• ST1.7: should be -968 kJ/mole glycine

## Answers at end of book

• E1.17 should be -8.0 J
• E1.39 answers a & b for some other problem.  Answer c) is for b) and d) is for c).  a) is -1401.5 kJ/mole diglycine (as written).
• E3.21 For the 5 member chain listed the proper answer appears to be:ΔG = -3.2 kJ/mol; ΔH = -77.3 kJ/mol; ΔS = -245.3 J/mol/K
The melting temperature is OK assuming the same sodium phosphate solution as in the example.
• E4.51biv The answer ignores the fact that carbonic acid does not completely give up its first proton at pH 7.4. It is only about 91% deproptonated. A better answer is 0.78 mol CO2/mol Hb. The model is very simplistic, so this isn't correct either.
• E7.27a the answer should be 0.018 not 0.18.
• E8.27 a) 9.6 x 102 s = 16 min  b) 27 hrs   c) 30 yrs
• E9.23 b) 4.98 x 1014 s-1

## Errors in Figures

• Figure 4.13 in the bottom row of the figure the ATP → ADP should be ADP → ATP as the phosphate group is released from 1,3-biphosphoglycerate.

## Errors in the Resource Section

• Entry for HN3(g) is labeled as NH3(g)
