PH 3210 - Physics of the Body II

This course is a continuation of Physics of the Body I with a concentration on the cardiovascular system, electricity and wave motion. Areas of study include the following: cardiovascular system (heart as a force pump, blood flow and pressure), electricity in the body (action potentials, resistance-capacitance circuit of nerve impulse propagation, EEG, EKG, EMG), and sound (hearing, voice production, sound transfer and impedance, ultrasound—transmission and reflection). In addition, students complete a guided, in-depth, investigation on a topic pertinent to Physics of the Body. Guest speakers from the medical community will be invited.

Prerequisite: PH 3200 .
