It is possible to reliably measure a quantitative
difference between the two groups that does not overlap . A population ... a population may 'break the rule' without invalidating it. The less a quantitative
difference varies within a population and the more it varies between ...
... and the molecules get close enough for attractions between the molecules to cause a rearrangement of bonds. The Arrhenius equation gives the quantitative
basis of the relationship between the activation energy and the rate at which a reaction proceeds. The study of reaction rates is termed chemical ...
... in the late 1930's by K. Cole and H. Curtis. Alan Hodgkin and Andrew Huxley also employed the squid axon (1939) and by 1952 they had obtained a full quantitative
description of the ionic basis of the action potential.
Hodgkin and Huxley were awarded jointly the Nobel Prize for this work in 1963.

In 1913, Leonor Michaelis and Maud Menten proposed a quantitative
theory of enzyme kinetics which is still widely used today (usually referred to as Michaelis-Menten kinetics ). Enzymes can perform up to several ...
... 'all', 'every' or 'complete') was " genome ", which refers to the complete genetic makeup of an organism. Because of the success of large-scale quantitative
biology projects such as genome sequencing, the suffix "ome" has been extended to a host of other contexts. The only other "ome" to shake its origin ...
... and what kinds of questions they ask of the measurements once they are made. In many cases involves calculating angles, areas, volumes and other quantitative
data from landmark and segmentation data.

On the basis of this epistemology, Steiner attempted to develop a qualitative science to complement the quantitative
science of Newton, Galileo and Einstein. Steiner claimed that if one practiced various systematic forms of inner discipline, it would be possible to ...

The material and molecular structure of a substance can often be inferred by quantitative
