Abstract
Information entropy of zero-point oscillations of a harmonic oscillator is calculated. Its value is expressed in both nats and energy units. It is shown the entropy’s physical meaning is determined by the wave particle duality of electromagnetic radiation. The energy resulting from information entropy of initial sub conformation of a myoglobin molecule is derived.
Keywords
Thermal equilibrium radiation, molecule, harmonic oscillator, zero-point oscillations, information entropy, myoglobin.
