Hairs

Suppose the length of the hair is affected by only the α-keratin synthesis, which is the major component. This synthesis takes place in the epithelial cells of the hair bulb. The structure of α-keratin is made up of α-helix, wherein in one revolution it is for the 3.6 amino acid residues. Each turn increases the α-helix of 5.7 Å. During the synthesis of the α-keratin per second on average 30 formed peptide bonds.

A)

What is the rate of hair growth in mm in one day?
The result round to three decimal places [mm/day]

B)

How many days will clone hair length 4.9 cm when the initial length was 3.5 mm?

Result

v =  0.41 mm/d
t =  110.9 d

Solution:

v=30/3.6(5.7107)(243600)=0.41  mm/d v = 30/3.6 \cdot (5.7 \cdot 10^{-7}) \cdot (24 \cdot 3600) = 0.41 \ \text{ mm/d }
t=(104.93.5)/v=110.9  d t = (10 \cdot 4.9 - 3.5)/ v = 110.9 \ \text{ d }



Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
