Abstract : The distribution of survival times of rats subjected to acceleration stress of +20 G(z) conforms to the Roginsky-Zeldovich or Elovich equation. This equation is derived from the hypothesis of electron or ion conduction across an activation energy barrier at the surface of a cell or subcellular particle, which suggests that tolerance to this acceleration stress is dependent upon such a biophysical process.
