Analog modeling of Worm-Like Chain molecules using macroscopic beads-on-a-string

Author affiliations

Abstract

This paper describes an empirical model of polymer dynamics, based on the agitation of millimeter-sized polymeric beads. Although the interactions between the particles in the macroscopic model and those between the monomers of molecular-scale polymers are fundamentally different, both systems follow the Worm-Like Chain theory.
