Units pg
Reference "Physical Biology of the Cell", Rob Phillips, Jane Kondev and Julie Theriot (2009). Page 26 table 1.1 Rules of thumb for biological estimates
Comments P.25 3rd paragraph: "The quantitative rules of thumb in Table 1.1 will serve as the basis of [investigators'] rough numerical estimates that could be carried out using a stick in the sand without reference to books, papers, or tables of data. Where do these numbers come from? Each comes from the results of a long series of experimental measurements of many different kinds."
