We have carried out computer simulations of the dynamics of a model polymer chain in a solvent. We find that the structure function scales for different chain sizes N as a function of q=kN with =0.6 exponent for the radius of gyration. Furthermore, S(q)q-53 over a wide range, as predicted by Edwards. Time-dependent correlation functions appear to scale as tN with 2+1. The time-displaced structure function is of the form S(kN,tN).
