PHZ 4702

This is the first semester of a two-semester sequence intended to discuss the applications of physics concepts (covered in College Physics, PHY2053C and PHY2054C) to biological systems and in medical applications. The first-semester course will cover the physical basis of some common biological processes. We will discuss the physics of bio-statics, bio-dynamics, fluid motion (blood flow), heat and thermodynamics of living systems (respiration and osmosis), and the structure and function of muscles. The physics prerequisite for this course is PHY2053C or PHY2048C. The level of mathematical skills necessary to complete this course is proficiency with algebra and trigonometry.
