APPENDIX7: “TYPOs” IN DR.STERNGLASS’s BOOK [REF.#1]

TYPOS IN STERNGLASS’s BOOK
Only the first six typos in the list are significantly confusing, enough to cause one to misunderstand details re the science:  the others are minor inconveniences.
***On page 152, in the diagram (part c), one of the arrows points the wrong way:
the one which indicates the direction of the orbit;
***P.213, line (-8):  change “1.703” to “1.581”;
***P.234:  [“Table 1:  Masses, sizes, and rotational periods of cosmological systems … “]:  At the bottom, it says that one megaparsec is equal to “9.46 trillion
kilometers.”  In fact, that is a lightyear.  A megaparsec is 3.261 million lightyears;
***P.242, line 4:  should say “2^100” —not “2100”;
***P.257, first full paragraph:  seems to be a math-error:  [speed of light] x [0.001 second] = 300 km, not 10 km as Sternglass says;
***P.265, #1:  formula should say:  Mu = e^4 / (m0^3 x G^2) … i.e.,
the “e” in the formula should have “4” —(not “2”)— as exponent;
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

***P.43, L.(-14):  add “of the” after “opposite”;

***P. 73, L.(-4):  change “affect” to “effect”;

***P. 117, L. 11:  add “is” after “that”;
***P.118, L.17:  add “equal” before “magnitude”;
***P.118, L.26:  add “if” after “even”;
***P.133, L. 11+12:  move “the” from before “electrons” to before “proton”;

***P.133: at the end of the 3rd full paragraph, add a “1” as a superfix, to refer to the END-NOTE at the top of p.264;

***P.152:  in the schematic-diagram, one of the arrows points the wrong way:  for details, see above, near the top;

***P.153, L.1+2:  change “the same” to “opposite”;  omit “but are … motion”;
***P.153, L(-11):  add a comma after “molecules”;

***P.159, L.(-2):  change “muons” to “pions”;

***P.160, L.4:  switch “only” and “produced” (for clarity);  L.5:  add “produced” after “never” (for clarity);
***P.172, L.12:  move comma to “them”;
***P.185, L.18:  omit the second “and”;
***P.187, L(-11):  add parentheses around “but not anti-protons” — (for clarity);
***P.192, L. 15:  add a comma after “electron”;
***P.205, last line:  add a comma after “otherwise”;

***P.210, L.21:  add: “and the gravitational force between them” after “electron”;
***P.211, L.(18): add comma after “muon”;
***P.213, L.(-8):  SEE ABOVE, near the top;  L.(-3):  change “that” to “than”;
***P.222, L.3:  remove comma;
***P.223, last line:  add “which” after the comma;
***P.234:  see above, near the top;
***P.242, L.4:  should say “2^100”,  not “2100”;  {or perhaps it should say “2^50”};
***P.243, L.26:  change “quarter” to “half”;
***P.244, L.11:  the second numeric value should be “1.94 x 10^30 grams;

***P.249, L.(-3);  add a comma after “pion”;

***P.257, see above;

***P.258, L.(-3):  add “which are” after the comma (for clarity);

***P.262, L.2:  change “superclusters” to “complexes”;

***P.263, ENDNOTE #3:   L.3:  change “masses” to “energies”;
L.3, L.4:   the “a” should be a GREEK-a;
L.5:  need a comma + a space after “1/137.036”;

***P.263, ENDNOTE #4:  L.(-11):  change “valve” to “value”;
***P.265:  SEE ABOVE, near the top;
P.266, ENDNOTE #7:  omit “that” after “J/psi”;  add a comma after “m0”;
***P.266, L.(-4):  formula should say:   [e^2/m0^2] / {2 x [ 2^(2/alpha) x (2/alpha – 2) ] }^(1/2) ;  the denominator of all this is equivalent to:  {2 x [ 2^(274.072) x (272.072) ] }^(1/2),  which is equivalent to: {2 x [ 3.20 x 10^(82) x (272.072) ] }^(1/2), equivalent to: { 2 x 8.68 x 10^(84) }^(1/2) = { 1.736 x 10^85 }^(1/2) = 4.167 x 10^(42);    Sternglass calls this “the Dirac number”;  see APPENDIX 3.
