Business Thermodynamics
Bc: the symbol for a baby-child human molecule aged -9.0 months to 15-years.

Biomolecule: living organisms defined specifically as large animated molecules; also, smaller molecules that naturally occur in living organisms – both variations consisting primarily of carbon C, hydrogen H, nitrogen N, oxygen O, phosphorus P, and sulfur S; being sometimes incorporated with less common elements as: calcium Ca, potassium K, chlorine Cl, and others.

See: Molecular Evolution Table

Bound State: a composite of two or more building blocks (particles) that behave as a single object.

Bond: a stable balance of attractive to repulsive forces (i.e. field particle exchange) that function to hold together associations of matter (as human molecules) over specified periods of time.

BT: the abbreviation for 'Business Thermodynamics'

Buffett Number: the number of books, generally thought to be one-hundred, one has to read on a given subject before he or she can lay claim to being a relative expert in that particular field.  As the story goes, at the age of seventeen, Warren Buffett, the now second richest man in the world, had read over 100 books on business.  In the year to follow, during his first few months at the Wharton School of Finance and Commerce, Buffett acknowledged that he knew more than the professors [14].

Business Chemistry: a basic science concerned with the structure, behavior, and function of business molecules and with the reactions, transformations, and reconfigurations that occur between business molecules, their connected networks, and associations; and with the resultant energy exchanges, transductions, and laws that unite these phenomena into a comprehensive system.

Business Molecule: two or more human molecules occupationally-bound with economic function.

Business Thermodynamics: the study of energy transformations in business systems.
