The Errata

We found an error in the 4th edition of Intermediate Physics for Medicine and Biology this week. Actually, it was Hugo Vrenken of the VU University Medical Center in Amsterdam who found a typo on page 539 in Problem 19 of Chapter 18: an equation has an extra factor of 4 in the denominator. Russ and I tried to ferret out all the mistakes in the book before publication, but inevitably we missed a few. If you are reading the book, you can find the not-yet-too-long list of known errors (the errata) at the book's website: http://www.oakland.edu/~roth/hobbie.htm . Although we really hate to find mistakes in our book, Russ and I are committed to letting our readers know about any that do exist. Please help us by contacting me if you find any mistakes. Thanks!
