  12. Young persistently disclaimed any other title. Like Helmholtz he seems to have entered the domains of sound and light from the physiological side; but the range of his interests was even broader than that of Helmholtz. He wrote on physics, astronomy, chemistry, botany, entomology, statistics, geodetics, egyptology, carpentry, tides, colloids, the structure of covered ways and bridges. His paper "On the Forms Best Suited for Teeth," refers not to dentistry but to cog wheels.
