Brilliant Green: The Surprising History and Science of Plant Intelligence

Are vegetation clever? Can they clear up difficulties, converse, and navigate their atmosphere? Or are they passive, incapable of autonomous motion or social habit? Philosophers and scientists have contemplated those questions in view that historic Greece, most of the time concluding that vegetation are unthinking and inert: they're too silent, too sedentary -- simply too diverse from us.

It is particularly important to realize that the laws of indices 1 a ras = a r+ s 2 (ary = a r, hold whenever a > O. Note that we do not define a r when a < 0 unless r is an integer. This is to avoid violating the laws of indices. o Using a calculator and employing six successive approximations to n, Example obtain six successive approximations to 2'"'. 14159 ... 821. 825 • LOGARITHMS From the laws of indices we obtain the laws of logarithms. Logarithms are important because they provide a transformation which enables the arithmetical processes of multiplication and division to be replaced by those of addition and subtraction.

In fact we shall see later that (1 + X)" = i (fl)xr r=O r is valid when n is any real number provided -1 < x < 1. However, until we consider the concept of infinite series (Chapter 9), the expression on the right will have no meaning for us. Here is an example which we shall solve together. It shows one practical application of some of the things we have been doing. 8 Practical _ _ _ _ _ _ _ __ t ELECTRICAL FORCE x A magnetic pole, distance x from the plane of a coil of radius a, and on the axis of the coil, is subject to a force F = 7 (a- kx 7 'in r)'- + (k constant) 23 24 NUMBERS AND LOGARITHMS when a current flows in the coil.
