Stokes law

(stōks),
1. a muscle lying above an inflamed mucous or serous membrane is frequently the seat of paralysis;
2. a relationship of the rate of fall of a small sphere in a viscous fluid; applicable to centrifugation of macromolecules;
3. the wavelength of light emitted by a fluorescent material is longer than that of the radiation used to excite the fluorescence.
[William Stokes]
