It may be verified from Table 2 that parameters estimated by the Law of Mass Action
have different rates than those originally obtained by Smith and Woodburn (1978).
Another example relates to the (A) law of mass action
. This law primarily applies to the fundamental quark equations, but was initially discovered by us by means of the chemical reactions at the high aggregation level.
Every chemistry student learns the law of mass action
in the first week of class: molecules are more likely to combine chemically if they bump into one another more frequently.
This very general statement included the law of mass action
of Guldberg and Waage (see 1867) and fit in well with Gibbs's chemical thermodynamics (see 1876).
This is because the [FT.sub.4] concentration (as dictated by the law of mass action
) depends on the equilibrium that exists between the protein-bound [T.sub.4] ([PBT.sub.4]) and the serum binding capacity (sBC, which is defined as the concentration of free binding sites times their binding affinity toward [T.sub.4]):
